Details:
The eclipsed Moon during the total lunar eclipse on September 27-28 2015. My wife (Albena) and I took this picture using our Celestron 9.25 telescope and a Canon 60D digital camera. Several stars are well-visible around the limb of the Moon. This is because the Moon was quite weakly illuminated inside the shadow of the Earth. The orange-red color of the lunar surface is a result of the sun light filtered and bended (refracted) by the Earths atmosphere at the border of the day and night (terminator). Our atmosphere scatters out more blue light, which makes it to appear blue during the day and causes the sunrises and sunsets to appear orange-red.
