Millions of people were left in awe last night as a rare astronomical event occurred for the first time in 150 years.

The "Super Blue Blood Moon", which was the combination of three unusual lunar events, with the addition of a total lunar eclipse left jaws-dropping across the Earth... With many of us scrambling to the best place to view it from.

What exactly is a Super Blue Blood Moon?

A blue moon is the second, full moon in a calendar month, a super moon is when the moon is unusually close to Earth - making it bigger and brighter - and a blood moon is a moment during an eclipse when the moon appears red.

For astronomy lovers, last nights events were a pretty big deal... And thankfully, many of us across the planet were able to join in the excitement.

Here are some of the best pictures of the Super Blue Blood Moon for you to see:
