Lunar Eclipse seen from Southport at 03:11 28/9/15

Last night there was a Lunar Eclipse, the Eclipse started at 0110 and ended at 0624

During the times of 0110 until 0311 the moon passed though the penumbra Shadow.

It was a combination of a “Supermoon” and Eclipse. During the eclipse the moon turned a “Blood red” colour during the times of 0311 until 0424, this is when the moon is in the Umbral Shadow. The moon looked 14% larger and 30% brighter as well.

Then from 0424 until 0624 it again passed though the penumbra shadow.
