I see a red moon rising

Set my alarm for an extremely early 2:30AM this morning. Why? So that I could catch the Supermoon eclipse.

From the BBC:

A supermoon occurs when the Moon is in the closest part of its orbit to Earth, meaning it appears larger in the sky.  The eclipse - which made the Moon appear red - has been visible in North America, South America, West Africa and Western Europe. This phenomenon was last observed in 1982 and will not be back before 2033.

Wandered around an eerily quiet Grenoside and headed into the woods to try to find a suitable backdrop. A tree gave a nice contrast to the moon so I took some photos of the peak eclipse at 3:47AM.
