2. Plan

Do your homework, use Google Maps and other apps to get just the right angle at the right time.

3. Get the location right

Travel to remote areas to avoid light pollution and use a compass so you know where to expect the moon.

A slight miscalculation can result in a mad scramble with other photographers.

4. Get creative with friends

The eclipse lasts an hour, so you have plenty of time to mess about.

Use people in shot.

Get friends to appear to hold the moon in their hand or shine touches towards the moon.
