    This is a cropped version of a five-position 360-degree panorama of the Chang'e-3, Yutu Rover landing site created by Ken Kremer and Marco Di Lorenzo. It was stitched from individual pictures released to a state-run China news outlet. The initial panoramic was then enhanced to improve contrast, lighting and uniformity, which revealed more detail.

The disk of the full moon turns blood red above India on June 15, as seen in this winning picture by 15-year-old Jathin Premjith, the Young Astronomy Photographer of the Year. A full lunar eclipse occurs approximately twice a year, when the moon goes into the Earth's cone-shaped shadow. The reddish hues projected onto the surface of the moon are created by sunlight refracting through Earth's atmosphere, which is filled with dust and pollution.
