LUNA is based on an oil painting by Linda Corbett depicting a phase of the Total Lunar Eclipse on the Winter Solstice_21.12.2010.

An eclipse occurs when the Earth is aligned between the Moon and the Sun causing the Moon to pass through the Earth's shadow.

During the 2010 eclipse the darker, southern half of the Moon lay deeper within the umbra (shadow) of the Earth than the northern half. The Moon's transit lasted several hours, producing an animated show of morphing colour ranging from bright white to cool blue, from yellow gold to deep red / brown.
