The night sky during the total lunar eclipse of 2014 April 15 with the tropical ocean breeze at the coast of Long Key State Park located on Long Key, one of the Florida Keys (a coral cay archipelago of many islands in the southeastern US). The eclipsed red Moon appears next to Mars which is shining brightly near its 2014 opposition. The summer Milky Way rises on the left in this early morning wide-angle view. In the middle right bright southern stars Alpha and Beta Centauri reach just high enough from the southern horizon to be glimpsed in the Florida sky.
