| | | | | | |

A video time lapse in 4K shows what is the deepest feeling of experiencing the incredible moment when the moon passes through the Earth’s shadow, giving the natural satellite a blood-red hue during a total lunar eclipse. The stars around the moon are again visible as the light of the moon drops drastically, giving rise to a unique moment of seeing the mesmerising presence of the Milky Way but at the same time, the shinning moon reflecting a low reddish light for being immersed inside the Umbra of the Earth shadow. The movie also intend to reveal the emotional feeling and ambience which surround us during this celestial event, when we are under the real darkness of a pristine starry sky like Mértola, in Dark Sky® Alqueva territory, Portugal. All the images were captured during the Total Lunar Eclipse of 16th May, 2022. For being near the closest point to our planet Earth, this Moon was also called a “Super Blood Moon”. According to next Lunar Eclipse it will happen in 2023, on 5-6 May and will be a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse visible in Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean and Antarctica. Close to the end of the year, on 28-29 October 2023, it wil be visible a Partial Lunar Eclipse, seen from Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, North America, Much of South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean, Arctic, Antarctica.

PT: O vídeo time lapse em 4K mostra qual é a sensação mais profunda de experimentar o momento incrível em que a lua passa pela sombra da Terra, dando ao satélite natural um tom vermelho-sangue durante um eclipse lunar total. As estrelas ao redor da lua são novamente visíveis à medida que a luz da lua cai drasticamente, dando origem a um momento único, o de poder apreciar a presença hipnotizante da Via Láctea, e ao mesmo tempo, a lua brilhando e refletindo uma luz avermelhada por estar imersa na Umbra da sombra da Terra. O filme também pretende revelar de alugma forma o forte sentimento e emoção que se experiencia no ambiente que nos rodeia durante este evento celestial, quando estamos sob a verdadeira escuridão de um céu pristino estrelado, como o de Mértola, no território Dark Sky® Alqueva, Portugal. Todas as imagens foram captadas durante o Eclipse Lunar Total de 16 de maio de 2022. Por estar perto do ponto mais próximo do nosso planeta Terra, a lua também foi apelidada de “Super Luar de Sangue”.
