Total Lunar Eclipse Victoria BC August 28 2007

I was absolutely amazed by the depth of the red colour. I don't remember ever seeing it so dark red. Given the exposure at totality it was very dark. The view of the stars around the eclipsed Moon at totality was stunning. The totality images contain many mag 7 and 8 stars. They're cut off in the composite image.
