Shanghai - Lunar Eclipse

Lunar eclipse December 10, 2011. As we had a clear night, this is sort of a "must have" shot. See where this picture was taken. [?]

 

Taken 22:48:25 local time. This was about 17 minutes after the "Greatest Eclipse" stage (14:31:49 UTC). "Greatest Eclipse": This is the peak stage of the total eclipse. At the Greatest Eclipse the Moon is at its closest point to the center of the Earth's umbra.
