Stargazers enjoyed a stunning blood red ‘supermoon’ in the sky above Accrington in the early hours of Monday morning.
The eerie light created from a lunar eclipse with the Moon near to its closest point to the Earth delighted amateur astronomers and photographers.
The event sees the larger-than-usual moon take on a strange red colour during a lunar eclipse.
The Blood Moon is not a scientific term used by astronomers but has become popular because of the reddish colour the eclipsed Moon takes on during a total lunar eclipse.
It goes this colour due to the reflection of sunlight on the Earth’s atmosphere during the eclipse - which is red to the naked eye.
The Blood Moon occurred in the early hours of Monday, September 28.
At around 2am the Moon was closer to our planet than usual and appeared in bright white. This is called a supermoon.
But within an hour, that changed as the Moon was eclipsed as the Earth passed between it and the sun. The Moon the went a red colour until around 4.30am.
