The Moon moving further and further into the Earth's shadow during the Total Lunar Eclipse of 27/07/18. Observed from Tofino Point near Tofo in Mozambique overlooking the Indian Ocean. This was an extremely magical place to experience this eclipse with wide, dark skies. I have a vivid memory of watching the eclipsed Moon with Mars as a bright meteor appeared directly above them both that will stay with me for a long time.
