Pictures from the Lunar Eclipse expedition in Peru – DE


Here are two shots summarising the Lunar Eclipse of April 15th, 2014. On the left, a frame from a starryearth.com video shot from the top of the Teide vulcano (see this YouTube video) with its shade pointing exactly to the partially eclipsed Moon (the small white spot at the head of the triangular dark zone). On the right the spectacular composition of the entire eclipse observed by a magic site, suspended between past and present: the access gate of the Inca fortress of Sacsayhuaman, place located North of Cusco, during the GLORIA project expedition to Peru.
