A view of the moon lying in its starfield around the mid point of totality during the 2019 January total lunar eclipse.  Castor and Pollux lie to the right of the moon and Regulus is upper left in the picture.

Here is a link to a time-lapse video of the immersion partial phase - a lot of cloud scudding by but the light changes as the moon enters eclipse are interesting
