DID you see tonight's spectacular wolf moon?

The skies cleared just long enough to catch a glimpse of the natural spectacle in Herefordshire.

But don't worry if you missed the chance, this slideshow of pictures from members of the Hereford Times Camera Club captures the full moon in all its glory.

Tonight we also had what is called a penumbral lunar eclipse.

This is where the Earth's main shadow does not cover the moon, according to timeanddate.com

Where the Earth, moon and sun are imperfectly aligned, the outer shadow of Earth (the penumbra) crosses the moon, resulting in a slight shadowing of the moon's brightness. This is the darkening we see during a full lunar eclipse though.

It was hard to see because the shadowy part was just a little bit fainter than the rest of the moon.

If you're wondering where the wolf moon gets the name, in early Native American tribes it was known as this because of the time of year when hungry wolf packs howled outside their camps.

There is also set to be a super full moon on March 9. So mark the date in your diary.
