WHAT IS A 'SUPERMOON' TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE?

The event comprises a full moon when it is at its closest point to Earth, known as a 'supermoon'.

The moon will appear up to 14% larger and 30 times brighter than usual.

This is combined with a lunar eclipse, which is when the moon passes behind the Earth into its shadow.

The eclipse will give the moon a red tint.

We had clear skies, so we look forward to receiving your images.
