CNN's George Engels shared images of the lunar eclipse taken by his father William on an iPhone between 2.25 and 2.40 am from La Carolina, 12 miles west of Maldonado, Uruguay.

The blood moon was clearly visible in Northland and many people got to see it, while some photographed it and others took a chance to have some fun images taken. The moon appeared bigger than normal, with a red cast as sunlight was refracted through the Earth's atmosphere.

Everyone could see the supermoon but the entire eclipse was visible only in North and South America, and across the Atlantic to western and northern Europe.

Totality - when the moon is completely bathed in Earth's shadow - lasted an hour. The moon's orbital path around the Earth takes place at an angle of 5 degrees to Earth's orbital plane around the sun, otherwise known as the ecliptic.

Australian Open 2019: Petra Kvitova vs Ashleigh Barty
So Ash has to somehow kind of neutralise the power and mix it up, but she's got the shots to bother Petra and break up her rhythm. She has already proven that she can trouble Kvitova; now she only has to beat her.

In the Cayman Islands, the partial eclipse began at 10:33 p.m., with the total eclipse beginning at 11:41 p.m. That eclipse will happen at moonset in the Americas, so there won't be very much to see there.

During a lunar eclipse, the Moon appears red because the light of the Sun no longer directly illuminates it, since Earth is passing in between the Moon and Sun.

Canada and the US won't have another chance to see this phenomenon again until May 2022.

Because, of course, lunar eclipses aren't the only celestial shows in the next few years. NASA's website lists several occurring in the coming two years; make sure to use specially designed solar-eclipse glasses to view the show. On June 21, 2020, an annular one will happen in central Africa, South Asia, China and the Pacific.
