Lunar eclipse: 10 stunning photos of the Blood Moon

moonLunar eclipse: 10 stunning photos of the Blood Moon

People around Australia were treated to the rare sight of a blood-red lunar eclipse on Wednesday night, as the Moon passed through the Earth's shadow for an hour.

Clouds proved to be a frustration for many people on the east coast, but the skies cleared for long enough to allow some stunning photos.

It was a different story over central and Western Australia, where photographers were given a great view of the Blood Moon.

From a partially obscured Moon to a blood-red total lunar eclipse, the spectacle offered an amazing insight into the mechanics of the solar system.

Scroll down to see 10 of the best photos from ABC photographers and readers around Australia.

A great story with a great moral that leaves us wondering about the real differences between the rich and the poor.

Nguyện đem công đức này, trang nghiêm Phật Tịnh Độ, trên đền bốn ơn nặng, dưới cứu khổ ba đường,
nếu có người thấy nghe, đều phát lòng Bồ Đề, hết một báo thân này, sinh qua cõi Cực Lạc.

May the Merit and virtue,accrued from this work, adorn the Buddhas pureland,
Repay the four great kindnesses above, andrelieve the suffering of those on the three paths below,
may those who see or hear of these efforts generates Bodhi Mind, spend their lives devoted to the Buddha Dharma,
the Land of Ultimate Bliss.
