Have your say

It may have been the wee small hours of the morning, but that did not stop skywatchers across the north west getting up to see the Super Blood Moon.

At around 2am this morning, Monday September 28, the Moon was unusually close to the Earth and looked bigger and brighter than usual, a Supermoon.

Within an hour, the Earth crossed between the Sun and the Moon in a total lunar eclipse.

Then, at about 4.30am, the Moon was fully visible again with a red glow from the Earth’s shadow.

It was the first time in 30 years that there was a Supermoon and a total lunar eclipse on the same night.

If you set the alarms clock to get out to capture the moment we’d love to be able to share your pics.
