Blood Moon

A rare event describing the combination of a Supermoon and Lunar Eclipse – both terms can be explained much more eloquently here.

The next Blood Moon won’t occur for another eighteen years. It was worth venturing out into the early hours of this morning and glimpsing this incredible phenomenon. A clear sky, so clear in fact, we could see the Milky Way. Point a pair of binoculars up there and all you can see are stars! Okay, I know what you’re thinking, but what a breathtaking sight. I need to do it more often – get out in the garden, lay on the grass and drink it all in.

Here are my humble efforts: Blood Moon/eclipse taken with a Panasonic, Lumix G1. Photos below are the best of the bunch.
