2020 February 05 – Lunar Eclipse Perspectives
In today’s image, we see images from the total lunar eclipse from January of 2019. The images are aligned using the background stars and were taken at the same time (as evidenced by the meteorite impact labeled on each image). The differences are due to parallax – the apparent shift of a nearby object relative to a more distant one because of a changing viewpoint. This is how we measure distance/depth by using our two eyes and how astronomers measure distances to the stars using observations from the opposite ends of the Earth’s orbit six months apart.
