“The Blood Moon occurs when there is a total eclipse of the moon around the autumn equinox and the moon is close to the earth,” he said.

“Although the moon is in the shadow of the earth, sunlight is refracted through the earth’s atmosphere, giving rise to this amazing colourful experience.

“The next one will be visible in 2033, so it was worth setting the alarm and getting up to see it!”

Colin Nash captured his picture at 3.39am from the Ridge, Hastings.

“What was most impressive aside from the eclipse was the stars they where the brightest I have seen them and the sky was very clear,” he said.
