Apart from a cloudy spell, it was a fantastic night for a lunar eclipse! As the bright surface disappears behind shadow, the orange/red colouring begins to appear. Someone described it as being like Mars thousands of times closer to the Earth. A fair description I think. Here's some cropped & shrunk photos I took:
EDIT: Forgot to add this, someone asked what camera I used. These were taken with my Minolta Z5 digital camera. 12x optical zoom really is a treat for stuff like this!
