Stargazers across the globe were treated to the stunning site of a rare blood-red supermoon. For the first time in three decades a supermoon – the time when the moon is at its closest orbit to our planet appears 14% bigger than usual – combined with a total lunar eclipse. The ethereal red glow lasted approximately one hour and 12 minutes and was visible in Europe, Africa, parts of Asia including China and Japan as well as North and South America. Take a look at some of the best shots from last night’s incredible celestial event of the year from around the globe.
