Supermoon over Henley caught on camera

Clear skies over Henley on Monday allowed local people to get up and view a rare supermoon eclipse

Clear skies over Henley on Monday allowed local people to get up and view a rare supermoon eclipse, a phenomena which won't occur again until 2033.

The rare 'blood moon', which takes it name from the red hue taken on by the moon as the Earth's shadow passes over it, could be seen between 3.10am and 4am.

Nick Hughes took a series of photographs which show the detail which was seen by those who did brave the still but chilly autumn morning.

David Wood took this photo from Maidensgrove at 3.47am on Monday stating it was "strange, but no one else appeared to be about, even to witness this phenomenon!".

Simon Narracott also managed to capture an image of the moon from the Gainsborough Estate in Henley, despite the light pollution making focusing difficult.
