Description

Timelapse summary of the total lunar eclipse of 16 May 2022 from the Teide Observatory (Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias). The recording starts after midnight. The intense illumination is from the full moon, which disappears during the eclipse. The tracking of the telescopes that make images and spectra of the satellite can be seen. The eclipsed moon is tens of thousands of times fainter than the full moon. During the eclipse the faintest stars and the Milky Way can be seen clearly. At dawn, the ISS can be seen crossing the sky.
