Caption: Lunar eclipse. Totality during a lunar eclipse. A lunar eclipse occurs as the Moon passes into the Earth's shadow. The red light is due to shorter wavelengths, such as blue light, being scattered more in the atmosphere than longer wavelengths such as red light. Lunar eclipses occur only at full Moon, and then only when the Earth and Moon are correctly aligned (about 2-3 times a year). This image was obtained by combining exposures from a Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. The eclipse took place on 3rd March 2007, with this view being seen from Sicily, Italy.
