 If you have the "Redshift" program, you can set it up to "see" this lunar eclipse with the stars that are identified in the photo.  Your observing location on Earth should be set to 111 25 0, +33 21 00 and you should set the time for 2001 hours local Phoenix time (there is no daylight savings time in Arizona.  No one wanted an extra hour of daylight on days where sundown is the only relief from the 110+ Degree F. heat.)  There was another star off to the right that is on the slide but I've been unable to capture it with the digitizer.
