Last Full Moon of the Year Featuring a Colorful Corona During a Close Encounter with Mars

| | | |

The image shows the last Full Moon of the year captured in a double exposure and “immersed” in a layer of clouds. The colourful hue that surrounds the moon, is a lunar corona formed while bright moonlight is diffracted by water droplets in thin clouds, drifting in front of the lunar disk. Mars is also visible as a little yellow-orange dot that lies in the blue boundary of the orange ring from corona circular shape. Located at a few degrees of the Moon for being captured at 18° latitude, from North America and Europe was possible to watch the complete occultation of the planet by the Moon’s disc.

PT: A imagem mostra a última Lua Cheia do ano captada numa dupla exposição e “imersa” em uma camada de nuvens. As tonalidades coloridas que circundam a lua, são provocadas por uma corona lunar, que se forma enquanto o brilho da lua é difractado por gotículas de água em nuvens finas, provocando a iridescência que lhe confere a cor, enquanto flutuam assim na frente do disco lunar. Marte também é visível como um pequeno ponto amarelo-laranja que fica no limite do anel azul que compõe a corona. Situado a poucos graus da Lua por ter sido captado a 18° de latitude, na América do Norte e Europa, foi possível observar a ocultação do planeta pelo disco lunar.
