A different take on the lunar eclipse with the northern lights2014-04-15 - AuroraMAX's roving camera captured this footage on April 15, 2014, of the total eclipse of the Moon with aurora filling the sky. Watch the close-up video in the lower-right corner to see the Moon takes on an increasingly reddish hue as it approaches totality, the moment when Earth's shadow covers it completely.
Watch this video to compare this point of view with the movie of the same eclipse and aurora shot with a fish-eye lens at the AuroraMAX observatory, which captures the entire sky: http://youtu.be/qGkZNVF9bdc
