'Blood' moon

Last Monday we had a so called 'Blood' moon and a lunar eclipse - the technical stuff is here. I was awake in the early hours anyway so checked out the window - foggy! Still awake an hour later I had another peep out the curtains and although slightly misty it was clearing quick. I watched for a while, taking photos every now and then, before the cloud began to thicken again. It was definitely reddish with the naked eye but through the camera it was fabulous! I didn't really sleep the rest of the night - just laid there feeling incredibly insignificant in the grand scheme of space!
