From the photographer: “The image shows a sequence of the Moon during the longest total lunar eclipse of the century, as seen from Campinho, Dark Sky Alqueva, Portugal, few minutes after the Moonrise and against a blue twilight background. The bright object under the moon is Mars as its brightest time. During a lunar eclipse, the moon passes through Earth’s shadow, giving the natural satellite a blood-red hue.”
