Independent, UK - Feb 21, 2008
The first total lunar eclipse for four years stunned observers across the world yesterday. Steve Connor explains what caused its dramatic change of colour ...

Watching last Wednesday's lunar eclipse, Mike Hollingshead was amazed how "the sky went dark when the Moon entered Earth's shadow." Photographing the event from the bitter cold ("0o F!") of Little Sioux, Iowa, he documented the startling change:

"The first frame looks like day, but it's just strong moonlight. As the eclipse progresses the stars pop out and the ground darkens," he says. "I just love this aspect of lunar eclipses."

"It has always fascinated me how dark it gets and how the shadows change during a lunar eclipse," agrees John E Cordiale who made a similar movie from his backyard observatory in Queensbury, New York. "I used a Nikon D200 to take 30 second exposures. This worked until mid-eclipse when the batteries in the camera stopped working at the 4o F outside temperature."
