Although the weather could of been better, I was pleased last night to be able to witness the last lunar eclipse visible from the UK until December 2029.
This is a composite of two seperate images blended together to show the stars not normally seen around the Moon. This is only possible during a lunar eclipse.
The Moon was almost at its closest to the Earth during this time making it loom larger than normal (now called a supermoon in this day and age)
The image above was taken just before the Moon completely entered the Earths shadow (called totality)
