Wonder what is this picture? Patience man, patience!
Watching the lunar eclipse is much easier than watching a solar eclipse because we can watch the lunar eclipse with naked eyes.
No special filter is required to protect our eyes from harmful rays.
The Suspense broken:
This picture is taken of the moon on a lunar eclipse day. To take this tunning photograph, astroimager Stefan Seip set his camera on a tripod and locked the shutter open during the total lunar eclipse of March 3, 2007. The resulting image records the trail of the Moon (and narrower trails of stars) sliding through the night. Reddish hues common during the total phase of a lunar eclipse, are evident along the darker, slimmer portion of the Moon trail.
Thank you Nasa.
