Under a Blood Red Moon

At exactly 8.37pm (Australian Eastern Standard Time) the Sun, Earth and Moon were in exact alignment causing a total lunar eclipse, also known as a "blood moon". It was the first total lunar eclipse to be seen from start to finish in the city's skies since July 2000. The next blood moon will not be visible until 11.45pm on December 10, 2011.

I managed to get a couple of photos of the eclipse before the moon became too dark to properly photograph.
