Eclipse Moonrise

During a lunar eclipse, a crescent moon gets smaller as it rises.

As the only natural satellite of the Earth, the Moon is the brightest object in the night sky. Considerably smaller than Earth, the Moon is only about 27 percent the radius of Earth. Its mass is also much smaller, resulting in a relatively weak lunar gravity. The Moon is scarred by impact craters and has remained largely unchanged for billions of years. Today the Moon remains the only celestial body visited by man. NASA Apollo astronauts landed on the Moon six times, between 1969 and 1972. The Moon's orbit is moving away from Earth at a rate of 1.5 inches (3.8cm) a year.

A Lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes through the shadow of the earth. Since this happens when the Earth is directly between the Moon and the Sun, an eclipse occurs only when the Moon is full. Although the Earth is blocking the light of the Sun, the Moon does not darken completely during most lunar eclipses. The atmosphere of the Earth can bend part of the sun's light around the earth and toward the Moon. In some cases, it can have a faint reddish illumination.

Resolution Guide:

4k: The highest-quality, premium video size at 4x the pixels of standard HD resolutions. Get the sharpest possible image and best color depth by integrating 4k footage into your creative work. For further editing control, look for the “R3D” file type, if available. 4k clips are usually recommended for high-end commercial use, within the limits of the item’s releases and royalty-free license.

HD (High Definition or Hi-Def): The hi-res industry standard in 1080 & 720 sizes. HD is the best size for modern TVs, general video streaming (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.), and is also generally applied in commercial & editorial uses within stated legal limits.

SD (Standard Definition): Standard def is the traditional size of TVs up until the mid-2000s. Currently, SD is the minimum quality needed to digitally stream content, and usually less expensive than HD or 4K. SD is also ideal for personal creative projects.
