In the Shadow of the Earth

A rare view of the earth. You hardly ever see it like this.

This is what it would look like from the moon as you were going to have an eclipse. The earth is much larger than the sun as viewed from the moon and so the eclipse lasts for hours.

Meanwhile the lunar landscape turns red and that must make for a very photogenic scene.
