These stunning pictures capture the moment a lunar eclipse coincided with the winter solstice for the first time in 400 years.
The lunar eclipse, when the moon passes through the earth’s shadow, was captured this morning in Plymouth, Devon.
It is the first lunar eclipse in two years and the first time that it’s coincided with the year’s shortest day since 1638.
According to NASA, the spectacular sight occurs when the Earth lines up between the sun and the moon, blocking the sun’s rays and casting its shadow on the moon.
