Total Lunar Eclipse of a Supermoon!

28 September, 2015

Total Lunar Eclipse just after the start of totality, about 0315 this morning. Also being called a “blood Moon”, because of the colour, and a “supermoon”, due to it being closer to Earth than for most other full Moons. Seeing conditions were poor in Shetland, with cloud obscuring most of the event, apart from some time just before and just after the start of totality. 10 minutes after I took this photo it was obscured again. Because of the cloud it was quite dim and much of the detail of the Moon’s surface is lost but it was still a great sight to see.
