This composite illustrate the Moon's progress in the Earth's shadow cone. The right picture correspond to the complete entry in the shadow (beginning of the totality), the middle one to the maximum of the totality and the left one to the totality's end.
During this eclipse, the Moon's South Pole (the Moon's bottom in this picture) has pass a little above the Earth's shadow center. Then, the South Pole is darker than the North one (the upper part of the Moon).
Notice the color gradient in the left and right exposures : from deep red toward the center of the shadow to the white in the shadow's outskirt, with intermediate orange greenish tints. It show that the blue is more scattered by the Earth's atmosphere than green, and that green is more scattered than red.
