what have in common those three pictures? The Earth's shadow is the link between them! From upper left to lower right, you have three appearance of the Earth's shadow at increasing distances: - in the Earth's atmsophere, less than 10 km: the blue-grey to pink Belt of Venus (anticrepuscular arch) - high above the atmosphere, about 350 km: ISS entering in the Earth's shadow (yesterday evening) in Taurus constellation - in space vacuum, at 380 000 km from there: a total lunar eclipse (in 09/27/1996)
