Missed the 'Blood Moon'? Here are some of the best pictures of the supermoon lunar eclipse 2015 from around the world...
In the early hours of Sunday night/Monday morning, it was the darkest night and the brightest, just minutes apart. Why? The moon was eclipsed as the earth was positioned between it and the sun – which made the sky go an incredible copper colour.
Yep, sky-watchers from North and South America to western Europe have been enjoying a rare astronomical event in which the moon has appeared to redden in the night’s sky – and it's being called a 'blood moon'. It’s the result of a rare combination of an eclipse with the closest full moon of the year.
