Above: February 10, 2017 Composite Image of the Full Moon and Penumbral Eclipse
Photography by Curtis and Norma Beaird
Tonight, we had a Full Moon. Curtis and I love to photograph the moon; or, as I say, "God's NightLight in the Sky!" Last night, I photographed the Waxing Gibbous Moon at 98.6% illuminated. Tonight, Curtis photographed the stages of the Full Moon during the Penumbral Eclipse, when the Earth cast a shadow, a Penumbra, on the moon.
His first moon photograph was at 7:23 pm EST and the last was at 8:54 pm EST. Our vantage point was Dublin, Georgia. You can see how the moon gradually had a shadow on the left side. If we had not been using a 300 mm zoom lens, it would have been difficult to see. He created a composite image to showcase the different stages. Even though this particular eclipse was not a Total Eclipse, you can still see the shadow on the moon.

Genesis 1:16 (KJV)
"And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day,
and the lesser light to rule the night: He made the stars also.
