Fulldome View of November 2022 Total Lunar Eclipse

Fulldome view of the total lunar eclipse over Kitt Peak National Observatory, a Program of NSF’s NOIRLab, on 8 November 2022. The eclipse occurred when the Moon passed through the northern part of the Earth’s shadow. In this part of the Earth’s shadow the effect of the ozone layer in our atmosphere is more visible, showing as a turquoise tint on the northern part of the lunar disc.
