Artist's Description

The full moon nearly always appears coppery red during a total lunar eclipse. That’s because the dispersed light from all the Earth’s sunrises and sunsets falls on the face of the moon at mid-eclipse. Thus the term blood moon can be and probably is applied to any and all total lunar eclipses.

Taken at 2:45 AM, the apex of the 4/15/2014 total Lunar Eclipse from Arnold Missouri, twenty miles south of St. Louis Missouri USA.

Nikon D90 with Nikkor 300mm lens on program mode. Focal length 300mm ~ f 5.7 ~ time delay 22s ~ ISO 400 Remote shutter release.
