From Zaak: 

"Getting this image took a lot of legwork and, even tougher for me, a lot of patience. The first photo I took was of the total lunar eclipse on November 8, 2022. I live in Denver, Colorado, and the skies were unfortunately rainy for the majority of that eclipse. Luckily, the clouds parted near the end of the Moon's journey through Earth's shadow and I got the shot I was hoping for.

A year and a half later, on April 8, 2024, that same plot played out again in the sky. After traveling to Amistad National Recreation Area in Texas, I was once again met with cloudy skies. Totality came under cover of clouds, but we managed to catch another lucky break.

It took quite a bit of planning and (frustratingly) even more luck, but I was able to make this image. I wanted to showcase the relationship between the Sun and the Moon, and the beautiful events we get to witness."
