From Greece to New York, from Moscow to El Salvador. The spectacle of the total lunar eclipse in the night between Sunday and Monday. The Moon has turned red in the sky all over the world. Our satellite was close to the closest distance from Earth and appeared somewhat larger than average in the sky.
You could see it with the naked eye, but from Italy the show was limited by the proximity to dawn. To have the eclipse of the Moon, it is necessary that the latter hide from the light of the Sun inside the shadow of the Earth. We need the alignment between the three bodies: in order Sun-Earth-Moon. It does not disappear during the eclipse, it takes on a different, reddish color. It derives from the fact that at that moment the Earth’s atmosphere is directing the red portion of the electromagnetic spectrum towards the Moon.
The images tell the spectacle of nature alongside the wonders created by man.
