JUst been watching it, I can see why it's called the blood moon now, really spectacular. It doesn't look like the moon at all, just a huge red ball in the sky.

..... We did see. The weather was perfect for viewing. Had the eclipse been a day later it would have been a washout so to speak.

I took some pictures on my old SLR, but I didn't have a trigger so it's possible they will all suffer from camera shake. I'll post them when I get them developed.

The moon was really blood red.
