Red Moon Over Cyprus

If you missed the Red Moon on Monday night then fear not - we have it covered! We're sharing these stunning photos taken by our contributing photographer Phil Parker in Larnaca, Cyprus.

The only partial lunar eclipse that we'll witness in 2017 took place on August 7th and was thankfully visible from Cyprus. A partial lunar eclipse occurs when the earth moves between the sun and moon but the three do not form a perfectly straight line in space. For it to occur, there must be a full moon and for photographers a distinct lack of clouds is more than helpful. We will have to wait until July 27th, 2018 before we can witness the next full eclipse which will be seen in Cyprus and much of Europe.

According to Phil he took the photos whilst at the Eucalyptus Coffee Shop in Tersefanou, Larnaca enjoying good company and an ice cold Keo or two. The photos were taken using a Nikon P900 camera with a zoom lens:

Phil Parker describes himself as an amateur photographer and has been uploading photos to the Cyprus Eastern Forum for many years. He used a Nikon camera to take these shots and says "the pleasure I get from my photos is knowing that people are enjoying them".
