17 Stunning Photos Of Last Night's 'Bloodmoon' Taken Over Ireland

If you missed last night's celestial event, see it here


Last night, a very special and rare thing happened in our skies.

The supermoon and lunar eclipse combined to create a phenomenon known a 'bloodmoon', where Earth's only natural satellite appears enormous in the night sky and takes on a rusty red colour.

But with the event occurring between 2am and 6am this morning, many of you probably missed it.

However, lots of moon-gazers around the country managed to capture some amazing photographs of the event, which we've gathered below.

Enjoy your belated bloodmoon.

Watch a recording of the celestial event below.
