At the weekend I wrote enthusiastically about the forthcoming total lunar eclipse and associated blood moon. I stayed up all night on Sunday, popping outside very now and then to monitor cloud cover and then take shots as the moon vanished into shadow. Sadly, clouds threatened to steal the show in my part of the world, floating across the moon until they finally won the battle and solid clouds hid any hint of red once the eclipse was complete.
These photos were taken over St Albans, Hertfordshire, early morning 21 January 2019.
