My Epic Photos of the Super Bloodmoon Lunar Eclipse

Last nights Lunar Eclipse was Epic! It was a supermoon – which is when the full moon is closest to the planet so appears biggest and brightest in the sky, and a Bloodmoon because when light is filtered through the earth’s atmosphere during a lunar eclipse it leaves only the red spectrum, thus Super Bloodmoon!

These are my photos taken from my back garden in Oxford. As the light got low the long exposure times made it tricky not to get a blurry shot, plus the cold night are made my camera lens keep fogging up. If I ever do this again a steadier tripod and lens wipes are in order!
