A partial eclipse celebrates the 50th anniversary of the moon landing: photos

Last night a partial lunar eclipse occurred; the moon has decided to darken the sun and give us this spectacle just for the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.

An eclipse occurs when the Earth’s shadow covers (completely or only partially) the Moon, while the Sun, Earth and Moon are aligned in this order. In the case of a partial eclipse the Moon is not sufficiently close to the ecliptic, or the ideal trajectory identified by the intersection of the celestial sphere and the plane on which the earth’s orbit lies. In practice, the Moon does not enter enough into the Earth’s shadow cone (the alignment of Sun, Earth and Moon is not perfect).









To celebrate this spectacular event to coincide with the landing on the moon, here are some songs that suit us, perhaps listening to a starry sky.
