A Re-Run of Yesterday's Total Lunar Eclipse

In case weather or continent or sleep prevented you from watching yesterday's total lunar eclipse, here is a time lapse re-run done by William Castelman. Beautiful photography, but I could live without the sound track.

William Castleman's time lapse video of the total lunar eclipse of December 20-21, 2010

Notice especially the circular shape of the earth's shadow on the moon. I believe a total lunar eclipse is the only natural phenomenon where the circular shape of the earth can be directly perceived by the eye, rather than inferred from observations. This shape is especially well captured in this video. Flat Earth Society members beware!

Keep on looking up!
