Blood Moon September 2015

The Lunar eclipse of 28th SeBlood Moon with Starsptember 2015 occured around 0230 UTC here in a cloudles West Cork.We were treated to a fantastic view from our balcony of the night sky, with the Milky way nice and clear, and the occasional Meteor to brighten things up. Here is the Blood Moon seen against the stary background.

 

 

Here are some pictures I took as the Eclipse progressed:
