This is such a pretty sky phenomena and all you have to do is look to the eastern sky after the Sun has set in the west to see these beautiful blue and pink colours spread across the sky.
My home faces east, so when it’s nice and clear I always race outside in the hope of seeing these pretty blue and pink hues of our Earths shadow in the sky.
Sometimes it's just a wisp of colour and very faint and at other times it’s very vibrant like my image above, I’m always on the look out for it, why don’t you try and see it too and perhaps take a picture.
What’s so remarkable about this image is that you don’t even have to leave Earth to see our planets shadow in space…. isn’t that just so awesome!
Image was taken with a Canon 70D camera and an 18-400mm Tamron lens; focal length was set at 20mm and aperture at f3.5. The ISO400 and the exposure time was 1/60th second, camera was on a tripod.
I took another image of the Full Moon embedded in the ‘Belt of Venus’ on the 6th June 2020 with lots of science information about this phenomenon, please go to that blog at:
