Beautiful Time-Lapse Footage of a Total Lunar Eclipse in Tajikistan

Jean-Luc Dauvergne captured some truly beautiful time-lapse footage of a total lunar eclipse while in Tajikistan on June 15th, 2011. Though it appears as if the Sun is out initially, the brightness of the footage is actually attributed to the Moon, and the lunar eclipse causes all the stars to come out.
