A Jewel on the Flower Moon

Explanation: Cloudy skies plagued some sky watchers on Sunday as May’s Full Flower Moon slipped through Earth’s shadow in a total lunar eclipse. In skies above Chile’s Atacama desert this telephoto snapshot still captured an awesome spectacle though. Seen through thin high cirrus clouds just before totality began, a last sliver of sunlit crescent glistens like a hazy jewel atop the mostly shadowed lunar disk. This full moon was near perigee, the closest point in its elliptical orbit. It passed near the center of Earth’s dark umbral shadow during the 90 minute long total eclipse phase. Faintly suffused with sunlight scattered by the atmosphere, the umbral shadow itself gave the eclipsed moon a reddened appearance and the very dramatic popular moniker of a Blood Moon.

说明: 这个星期日,当五月满相的花月滑入地球的影子,带来月全食景观之时,有些观天者也为多云的天空而困扰不已。不过,这幅用长焦镜头摄于智利阿塔卡马沙漠的影像里,仍清楚记录到天空中令人敬畏的奇观。在全食开始之前,透过薄薄的高卷云可以看到最后一丝的阳光,在大多沉浸在阴影里的朦胧月盘上,染出一抹有如闪闪发光宝石般的银白。在椭圆轨道上,这轮满月位在离地球最近的近地点附近。在长达90分钟的月全食阶段,月盘穿过地球黝黑本影的中心附近。而流泛着被地球大气散射暗淡阳光的本影阴影区,让食月带着泛红的外观,更为它博得血月的称号。
