Product details

Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year is the largest international competition of its kind. Organised by the Royal Observatory Greenwich and sponsored by Insight Investment, the competition receives entries from photographers all around the world. It annually showcases the best space photography from a global community of astrophotographers.

This image depicts the 35 phases of the total lunar eclipse on 21 January in one photograph. The sequences were taken with three-minute gaps using a pre-programmed shutter remote. They were stacked onto each other using the faint background stars as a guide so that I could reveal the real orbit of the Moon. The phases were so close together that it melted in a continuous image that captured the shadow of the Earth. On the edge of the shadow a rare bluish tint, the shadow of the Earth's ozone layer, appeared.
