Arc of an Eclipse
Photographs by Kwon O Chul, TWAN
In a multiple-exposure picture, the full moon emerges from near darkness as a lunar eclipse slowly ends over Seoul, South Korea, during the early morning of June 16. (See more pictures of the June lunar eclipse.)
Because the moon passed almost directly through the center of Earth’s shadow, the event was the longest and deepest total lunar eclipse in more than a decade, according to Ben Burress, staff astronomer at the Chabot Space & Science Center in Oakland, California.
