Thousands of people enjoyed the most spectacular lunar eclipse in more than a decade, thanks to clear skies across most of the country.
The first total eclipse of the moon in three years was visible across swathes of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland as a showery day gave way to a crisp night.
The surface of the full Moon first went dark before turning a coppery red, to the delight of the many people who went outside to watch the display.
