Lunar Eclipse above Yellowknife
In 2010, on the night of winter solstice in the northern hemisphere (Dec. 20/21), a total lunar eclipse took place. Here the TWAN photographer has captured the eclipse by a sequence of digital images in time-lapse photography technique. The resulted startrail image shows how the bright Full Moon has gradually fainted to a red disc during the total eclipse, as seen above snow-covered landscape of Yellowknife in northern Canada. Other notable trails in the image include stars of constellation Orion below the Moon.
