Skywatchers howled at the Moon at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles when the full lunar eclipse appeared shortly after 8.41pm Pacific time on Sunday (12.41pm yesterday Singapore time) and our celestial neighbour was bathed reddish-orange during a Super Blood Wolf Moon.

Lunar eclipses can only take place when a full moon occurs around a lunar node, the point where the two orbital planes meets.

Other monikers include a "Wolf Moon", a traditional way of coining an eclipse in the month of January, and a "Blood Moon" because of its rusty, red colour.
The full eclipse began at 0440 GMT in the United Kingdom and appeared red at 0512 GMT, according to the Royal Astronomical Society.
