A penumbral lunar eclipse took place on Friday evening.
The partial lunar eclipse will be visible in the UK, much of Asia, Africa, eastern parts of South America, and western parts of Australia.
Those gazing skywards from much of the UK were treated to nothing by dark skies.
The rare event was visible to people across different continents but proved elusive for many in Britain.
Overnight on Friday the UK will witness a spectacular total lunar eclipse, expected to be the longest one of the 21st century.
Sky or stargazers will be in for a treat, as the 'supermoon' will appear overnight on Sunday.
Two significant events will take place simultaneously as Mars reaches its closest point to Earth while the Moon will be totally eclipsed, causing the whole moon to turn red.
The expected lunar eclipse can be seen in North America and on the YouTube channel below from 07:00am UK time.
The live image stream will be hosted by Slooh Observatory Director Paul Cox and Slooh astronomer Bob Berman, who will be reporting live from Prescott Observatory in Prescott, Arizona.
