Lunar Eclipse - When the Moon passes through Earth’s shadow

We see the stages of a Total Lunar Eclipse from vantage points on Earth and on and near the Moon. The red light of all the sunrises and sunsets taking place on Earth at that moment illuminates the Lunar landscape.

The music is 'In The Steppes Of Central Asia' by Alexander Borodin, a Public Domain recording performed by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra, composed 1880.
