Between now and 2021 there will be another six lunar eclipse’s, however, they will all be partial lunar eclipses, meaning that the moon will not be totally illuminated.

This month’s total blood moon lunar eclipse took place in the early hours of Monday 21st January, with the eclipse reaching totality at around 5:15am.

There was some cloud around for some people on Merseyside, which ruined the chances of viewing the event.

However, some people did manage to capture a glimpse from Liverpool. Here are some of the best pictures.
