Super Blood Wolf Moon Visible In Lewis

Despite the cloudy conditions, those hardy Lewis souls who got up in the middle of the night were able to catch fleeting glimpses of the "super blood wolf moon", during brief breaks in the clouds.

The red-coloured "blood moon" occurs when planet Earth is positioned directly between the sun and the moon, thereby casting a shadow that obscures the moon and briefly brings about a full eclipse. Small amounts of light manage to leak around the shadow and are sufficient to make the moon visible in an eerie red hue. The term "wolf moon" is, traditionally, used for January's full moon and so, on this occasion, the two combined.

Emma Rennie, of Callanish, captured a lovely shot of the moon emerging from Earth's shadow and another one of the full moon, under a layer of cloud, positioned above the Callanish Stones.
