Caption: Earthshine is seen on the face of the Moon during totality of the August 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse from Bandit Springs, Oregon in the United States. Earthshine is sunlight reflected off the Earth and back to the Moon. This photo was taken at 17:21:15 UT on 21 August, 2017, just 16.6 seconds before maximum eclipse (17:21:31.6 UT) during totality and 38 minutes and 45 seconds before technical new moon at 18:30 UT on 21 August 2017. New Moon is defined as the moment when the Moon and the Sun have the same ecliptic longitude. Several faint stars were also recorded in this same image. The Bright Star Regulus (Alpha Leonis) at magnitude 1.36 is at lower right. Nu Leonis at magnitude 5.26 is at left. TYC 833-134-1 at magnitude 8.24 is next to Regulus. HD87668 at magnitude 8.35 at upper right. BD +13 2182 at magnitude 8.71 next to Nu Leonis at left.
