THE Blood Moon's apperance yesterday morning vowed obervers across the country who managed to grab a glimpse between cloudy skies.

The event was captured by News Group Camera Club member Dave McGirr in these stunning images shared on the Club's Facebook page.

Unlike solar eclipses, the total lunar eclipse was completely safe to observe from the naked eye, making it a not-to-be missed event for photographers.

These photos were taken in Porthmadog and thanks to a completely clear sky offered a stunning view.
