Lunar eclipse sequence

There was a total eclipse of the moon tonight. I went out into the garden and photographed this sequence of images as the earth’s shadow fell across the lunar surface.

The top row of images is exposed correctly for the light part of the moon. The bottom row of images is exposed correctly for the section in shadow. When the moon is in total eclipse it appears blood red.
