Mid Eclipse.  The red color comes from sunlight being spread out into a rainbow of colors by the Earth's atmosphere, with red being the color that reaches the Moon.

 Here you see the partially eclipsed Moon, with the Pleiades (above the Moon and slightly to the right) and the Hyades (above the Moon and to the left) Star Clusters.  There were a few thin clouds that night.
