Into the Shadow

Hungarian Named Astronomy Photographer of 2019

September 13, 2019

Hungarian photographer László Francsics has been named the overall winner of Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2019 by the Royal Museums Greenwich. His bewitching image, 'Into the Shadow', depicts the 35 phases of the total lunar eclipse that occurred on January 21, 2019.

The winner was praised by Ed Robinson, award-winning photographer, director, creative director and founder of OneRedEye Visual Communications, who said that "for a single multiple-exposure image to capture this event with such positional precision, creative innovation and beauty is nothing short of masterful. The colors of our atmosphere projected onto the Moon’s disc during the eclipse are not only artistically pleasing, but also offer an understanding of such events and can reveal aspects of our own, thin, yet essential atmosphere. In a year that celebrates 50 years since the first lunar landings, is it fitting that this year’s overall winning image captures such a dynamic and captivating view of the Moon. A worthy winner indeed."
