We’ve already had a number of great images from Banbury Guardian readers who got up early to witness the super blood moon eclipse this morning (Monday).

Sam Smith shared with us this great image from Hook Norton, where he took it a different time cycles throughout the sequence.

He said: “I used my Canon 650D DSLR camera with a Tamron 70-300mm lens which was mounted onto a tripod pointing to the moon. I took a photo around every ten minutes. Then on the computer I cropped the photos down and picked the best eight to go on the final image.”

Anyone who has any pictures of the super blood moon eclipse can still send them in to editorial@banburyguardian.co.uk and we will feature the best ones in this week’s Banbury Guardian.
