Last Saturday night revealed the shortest lunar eclipse this century and our night skies displayed an astonishing "blood moon". This astronomical event occurs when the sun, moon and Earth align, and the moon's colour is a result of sunlight scattering off Earth's atmosphere.
Despite clouds drifting by, I managed to capture these images.
. . . and the following shots were taken during my 20 minute observations
There will not be another total lunar eclipse (visible from earth) until 2018.
