The skies over Inverness in Scotland as a rare celestial event, as a lunar eclipse coincides with a so-called "supermoon".<br />
A supermoon occurs when the Moon is in the closest part of its orbit to Earth, meaning it appears larger in the sky.<br />
The eclipse - which made the Moon appear red - has been visible in North America, South America, West Africa and Western Europe.<br />
This phenomenon was last observed in 1982 and won't come again until 2033.<br />
But the definition of a supermoon is debated among astronomers.<br />
