Eiffel Moon


Explanation:

Celestial and terrestrial lights are featured in this stunning image
that includes the Moon in phases of the total
lunar eclipse of March 3rd.

In the foreground, the distinctively-shaped
Eiffel Tower, over
300 meters tall, is a well-known
tourist
destination
and one of the most visited buildings in the world.

Of course the
Moon
is even more
recognizable, but harder to
visit.

The last lunar tour was undertaken nearly 35 years ago,
during the Apollo 17 mission.
