Partial Lunar Eclipse, 2017-08-07

The partially eclipsed Moon, photographed on August 07, 2017, 18:34 UT, soon after moonrise, and shortly after the time of maximum eclipse.

 

The reddish color is not due to the eclipse, but rather caused by the low altitude of the moon (similar to the reddish color of the rising sun).
