This photographer Matthew Kozic, got incredibly lucky while filming lunar eclipse with his smartphone. While the moon was young, a seagull flied by, and left a great shot to be admired at.
Thanks to the fact that the moon was so low on the horizon, colors are seen so vividly both on the moon, on the sky and on the seagull.
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly behind the Earth into its umbra (shadow). The reason why the Moon takes on a reddish color during eclipse is a phenomenon called Rayleigh scattering. It is the same mechanism responsible for causing colorful sunrises and sunsets and the sky to look blue.
