Earth's Shadow ~ The planet's shadow arches outwards through the atmosphere.  Josselin Desmars saw this sight over Germany on December 18, 2010.  At right, towards where the sun has already set, the yellow-pink twilight arch lights the horizon.  At top just to the left of Galleries, Jupiter glows in the darkling sky.  ©Josselin Desmars, shown with permission.
