The bright Full Moon is dramatically dimmed by the Earth shadow during a total lunar eclipse as shown in this HDR (High Dynamic Range) composite image. The moon size is slightly enlarged in the composite processing to cover the over-exposed moon in the background image. The eclipsed moon shines in red and is hosted by constellation Leo. Stars of Ursa Major (Big Bear) are also notable at top right in this wide-field view.
