Lunar Eclipse, Ramon Crater, Negev Desert, Israel by Michael Nalsky

No, it is not the sun! When the lunar eclipse ended, the moon shined so bright in clear desert air illuminating the whole landscape and casting long, deep shadows. It was an unforgettable show; the moon gradually turned red after moonrise losing 90% of its brightness, so the stars and MW were perfectly visible during full eclipse.

I tried to memorise all magic I witnessed in this composite frame: sky exposure was taken during full eclipse, foreground during full moon and the eclipse phases were added later. Photographed during 2018 lunar eclipse in Ramon crater, Negev desert, Israel.
