Digital Blasphemy Mobile: Earthshadow
Home joinlogin gallery social site prints help

This piece arose from a converstation I had with my boys while driving down to southern Illinois to witness last week's total solar eclipse. We were talking about eclipses and how an eclipse would appear from the moon, with the sun covered by the Earth. We see these as "lunar eclipses" here on Earth and basically the moon turns blood red for a couple of hours. Why does it turn red? Because the sunlight creates a bright red ring around the Earth as it passes through our atmosphere.

As I was describing it I got to thinking that it would make for an interesting wallpaper. I hope you enjoy the result. If you are used to solar eclipse photos you will notice that the corona is smaller here. This is because the Earth is larger than the moon and blocks more of it from being seen. I realize the image looks a bit dark and featureless in thumbnail form but the larger versions in my gallery should show more detail.
