Earth Shadow with Lunar Eclipse

This image shows the Earth's shadow on the atmosphere and also on the Moon. The nearby shadow is just the top edge of a long cone extending out into space, the Moon just touches the lower edge of the shadow cone.

A wider angle view and longer exposure shows the contrast between the shadow and the pink Belt of Venus above it.
