During the deep partial lunar eclipse of November 18-19, 2021, some 97% of the moon was submerged in Earth’s shadow. The moon took on the coppery red color characteristic of a total lunar eclipse. This eclipse was particularly viewable from North America. And EarthSky heard from many observers – both at our
community photo page and at EarthSky Facebook – who saw the eclipse. It was grand! Our thanks to all who contributed photos!
We received many lunar eclipse photos at EarthSky Community Photos. This is just a small selection. Click here for more. Thanks to all!

View at EarthSky Community Photos. | Jeff Berkes saw the eclipse on the morning of November 19, 2021, at East Point Lighthouse, New Jersey. He caught both the eclipsed moon and the tiny, misty, dipper-shaped Pleiades star cluster, aka the 7 Sisters, which happened to be nearby. Jeff wrote: “Clouds, gusty winds and rain cleared the area around 2 a.m. Eastern Time and allowed me to view and photograph this beautiful moment.” Beautiful indeed. Thank you, Jeff!
View at EarthSky Community Photos. | Joel Weatherly in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, kindly provided this cool composite image, showing how the moon moved through Earth’s shadow on eclipse night. He captured the 3 eclipse images on the morning of November 19, 2021, and superimposed them on a diagram of the dark inner shadow of Earth, called the umbra, and the lighter surrounding penumbra. Joel wrote: “Eclipses present a neat opportunity to see the shape of our planet. This image features photos from last night’s partial lunar eclipse superimposed over a diagram of Earth’s shadow. The scale is approximate. This image is for illustrative purposes.” Thank you, Joel! It’s like seeing an eclipse diagram coming to life!

Peter wrote: “This is my shot of the beautiful November 2021 lunar eclipse! I was awake all night taking photos of the scene. This is an HDR composite image of two exposures. The first for the shadow side was tracked at 15″ ISO 100 f/10, and the second for the illuminated side was 1/20″ ISO 100 f/10 (the 2 shots taken 10 seconds apart).” Thank you, Peter!
View at EarthSky Community Photos. | Sergio Garcia Rill at George Observatory in Houston, Texas, took these images on November 19, 2021. He wrote: “This image represents the night of the lunar eclipse on November 19, 2021, as seen from the George Observatory at Brazos Bend State Park near Houston, Texas. I took photos from the beginning through the end of the eclipse and merged them to represent the whole phases of the eclipse as the shadow of the earth slowly covered the moon until it was almost (97%) covered, and then as it moved out of the shadow and returned to normal before sunrise.” Thank you, Sergio!

View at EarthSky Community Photos. | Patrick Prokop in Savannah, Georgia, wrote: “The lunar eclipse of November 18-19, 2021, from the beginning to the maximum eclipse of 97%. Photos were taken in the Heavenly Backyard garden using the Orion EON 130mm refractor telescope. There were periods of dense cloud cover which caused some of the middle images to be a bit blurry, as I had to work around the brief cloud openings but the sky clear just before the maximum portion of the eclipse.” Great work, Patrick! Thanks for sharing.
View at EarthSky Community Photos. | Marsha Kirschbaum took this image of the eclipsed moon on November 19, 2021. Marsha wrote: “With the weather forecast for clouds, I honestly didn’t think I would see the eclipse and went to sleep. I awoke shortly before 1:00 a.m., threw on a jacket and went outside. There it was! Shining through a thin layer of clouds. I ran inside and grabbed my camera and tripod. I was able to get this photo before the clouds thickened up and the moon disappeared.” Thank you, Marsha!
