Lunar eclipse of the century

Between July 27 and 28, 2018, the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century occurred.

For the occasion, I planned to go up to high altitude, about 1,800 meters above sea level, on Mount Terminillo.

The Moon was at apogee, the farthest point from Earth while Mars was at perigee, the closest point to Earth.

The show was very emotional, also benefiting from the time of year during which the Milky Way is at its highest point in the sky.
