Partial lunar eclipse near its peak, from the roof of the European Southern Observatory (ESO) Headquarters in Garching, Germany on 7 August 2017. The entire Moon is turned red by its light scattering through the Earth's atmosphere and is known as a 'blood moon'. The bottom right part of the full Moon blends into the sky having entered the umbra of the Earth's shadow.
