View at EarthSky Community Photos. | Peter Forister was in Shenandoah National Park in the U.S. state of Virginia when he captured the images to create this composite photo of the total lunar eclipse on November 8, 2022. Peter wrote: “This is the shot I’ve been looking forward to for years, and it came out like everything I hoped it would! This is a composite of 2 different frames, one exposed for the dark/ shadow side of the moon and one exposed for the bright side. They are combined in post-processing to give the HDR look.” Thank you, Peter! Beautiful.

Steve wrote: “This morning’s lunar eclipse over the Twin Lights of Navesink, Highlands, New Jersey. Just prior to this shot, the International Space Station flew over as well. Chilly, but rewarding morning.” Thanks, Steve!
Lunar eclipse with Uranus on the limb.
View at EarthSky Community Photos. | Meiying Lee in Yunlin, Taiwan, captured this image of the lunar eclipse and the planet Uranus, the most distant planet you can see with the eye alone. It happened that Uranus was next to the moon on the eclipse night. In fact, the moon swept in front of Uranus, temporarily blocking it from view for some earthly observers. Meiying caught the moon and Uranus before and after the occultation. She wrote: “On November 8, 2022, the total lunar eclipse occurred in Taiwan. And the lunar occultation of Uranus occurred at the same time as the eclipse.” Thank you, Meiying!

The moon is positioned just over the top of the pine trees in a park in Madison, Wisconsin.” Thank you, Kaitlin!
