The Trio :
Images of Total Lunar Eclipse of 2014 April 15th

I have never seen such a beautiful Lunar Eclipse : with colors varying from dark-red to light-yellow across the disk of eclipsed Moon and with two bright objects next to eclipsed Moon forming unforgettable Trio soaring in the sky...

The one to the right of the Moon was Mars having the same color as center of the eclipsed moon and another one below the Moon was Spica : Alpha Virgo, the brightest star in the constellation of Virgo.

Only because of the Eclipse it was possible to depict the Trio on a single image; otherwise the light of the Moon shining normally would prevent the star and the planet from appearing along with the Moon.

Now, the pictures...

Now the Totality... And Trio !

Thank you, and have a nice day !
