An astronomical midsummer night's dream with Moon and Mars

On the evening of July 27th, two special astronomical events will take place: the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century and Mars close to the earth and at the same time inopposition to the sun. During this phase, the red planet is particularly good to observe.
