Last night saw a rare Super Blood Moon over Merseyside and incase you missed it, here are some of the best stunning pictures below.
A super blood moon is when a lunar eclipse coincides with a supermoon – when the moon looks about 14% larger and 30% brighter.
The earth blocks sunlight from a unusual larger and brighter moon, as the sunlight is scattered through earth atmosphere, the light dispersers into a reddish colour, casting a red tint onto the moon.

The last super blood moon happened in 1982 and it won’t happen again until 2033, although we are due another regular Lunar Eclipse in 2019.
