Observers described the Moon as "dark and coppery," and there was a beautiful flash of turquoise at the onset of totality caused by the filtering effects of Earth's ozone layer. While the Moon was deep inside Earth's shadow, photographer Anthony Arrigo of Park City, Utah, caught the 8th magnitude star TYC 5807-1036-1 emerging from behind the darkened lunar limb.
