The total lunar eclipse of April 14-15, 2014. Incredible view from the Very Large Array radio telescope in southwestern New Mexico. As the moon was deep into the partial phase, stars that were drowned out by the brilliant full moon began appearing. During totality the sky was full of stars and the red moon was accompanied by Mars. Midway through totality the Milky Way rose in the east, an astonishing site as we were treated to a celestial show throughout the night.
