The natural world. Looking pretty for 3.5b years.

Eclipse Sequence

Author: Hugh Bollinger/Wednesday, April 16, 2014/Categories: natural history, photography, art and design

A time-lapse photo-montage of the recent lunar eclipse, or 'blood moon', was produced.

According to NASA, it was crafted by making an exposure every 10 minutes as the Moon's position progressed above the skyline on the USA-Canada border. During the 3rd Century BCE, a Greek astronomer calculated the duration of lunar eclipses without the benefit of digital clocks and cameras. He would have appreciated this photo sequence.
