Total Lunar Eclipse of 1996 Sept 27

This could be one of my beginnings in photography, photographing astronomical phenomena such as lunar eclipses. It was an amazing experience to watch as the full Moon slowly disappeared behind the dark shadow of the Earth. I had already seen other total lunar eclipses before but this was the first one in which I had a camera with which I could photograph it. These photographs have become treasured memories of the 1996 total lunar eclipse. The total lunar eclipse was an amazing experience, and I am glad that I was able to capture it in my photographs. It’s a memory that I will never forget.

On September 27, 1996, a total lunar eclipse was visible across North and South America, Europe, Africa, and parts of Asia. The photos showed the moon in various stages of the eclipse, including the total and partial phases. During the total eclipse, the moon appeared reddish-orange, and its shadow was visible on the Earth’s surface. I was able to capture this intense color in my photographs.

I captured many photographs of the eclipse, each one capturing a different phase of the eclipse. I was able to capture the Moon as it slowly moved into and out of the umbra, and even managed to get a shot of the Moon during totality. The photographs were taken with a 35mm camera Olympus OM-40 Program, a tripod, and a 300mm telephoto Tamron zoom lens.
