Lunar Eclipse from Start to Finish
The 8 November total lunar eclipse from start to finish as seen from Kitt Peak National Observatory, a Program of NSF’s NOIRLab. The deep red color of this lunar eclipse (lower left) is believed to be remains of the ash from the 2022 Hunga Tonga–Hunga Ha'apai volcanic eruption.
The extent of the Earth’s shadow can be seen. The "ozone fringe" in blue due to ozone absorption in the upper stratosphere of the Earth is seen to the right and left.
