i heard that the color of the moon during an eclipse is the result of all the accumulated sunrises and sunsets at that moment reflected from earth. though i'm not sure if that is correct, while enjoying the eclipse, i kept both the thought of a projected corona of terrestrial twilight in mind along with the poetry of such gravitational alignment of moon, earth & sun that even the tides stopped to gaze.
