An Artistic Look at the Lunar Eclipse


What do you do if you’re watching the lunar eclipse but don’t have your camera? Make a sketch, just like the astronomers of old. Amateur astronomer Ted Judah from California enjoyed the eclipse, but since he was away on a trip with his family and “there was no room for my astrophotography equipment in the car,” he said, Ted resorted to drawing what he witnessed. Lovely.

Below is another artistic view of the eclipse, although taken by a camera.

A unique view of the lunar eclipse by Tavi Greiner.

Tavi Greiner took this image from her yard in Shallotte, North Carolina. Her description: “The darkened sky beneath Totality’s copper Moon reveals Orion to the left and Pleiades to the right.” See more of her images at “A Sky Full of Stars.”

  1. In the bottom picture, you can see the cloud bank that barely obscured my view of the eclipse here in Hope Mills, NC.

  2. This drawing is magnificent & is the very first time ever I’ve seen a drawing of an eclipse – whether it be Lunar or Solar!
