Lunar Supermoon Eclipse on Sept 27, 2015
The beauty of photography is the ability to capture a moment in time. The eclipse of the supermoon is a once in a generation occurance. This photo captures a rare view of the moon as it is coming out of the total eclipse. It was a surprise to me to see the blue band in the picture. I did not remember seeing it with my eyes when I was taking the pictures. However, during post processing where I can lower the brightness of the brightly lit portion of the moon and increase the brightness of the shaded portion of the moon, I discovered a very clear blue band at the border between the bright white and dim red of the partially eclipsed moon. This blue band is caused by the sun light traveling through the Earth's ozone layer.
