The Lunar eclipse of 28th September 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 starry background.

Here are some pictures I took as the Eclipse progressed:

Well worth setting the alarm!! The images were taken on an Olympus E-M10, a 300mm lens at f2.5 and around 1 second exposure and ISO set at 200
