On November 8, 2003 there was a total eclipse of the moon which was visible throughout much of the world. It was the early evening at Keppel Henge when the earth's shadow began to cross the face of the moon.
This photograph, and the detail below, show the progress of the moon as it glides into the shadow over the course of about an hour and a half.
The moon typically glows with a lovely copper-orange colour during totality. This multiple image was made by taking an exposure every five minutes. It makes an interesting comparison with the analemma photo, which was taken facing the same direction, but from a vantage point farther back from the henge.
