Dear Elizabeth
I did get out of bed to see this phenomenon.
The early night was crisp and the stars were seen very clearly. The planet
near the moon was large and shining roundly and very brightly throughout the
night until I went out at 5am.  At this stage the moon was almost covered in
a pale thin blood colour and craters were darkly visible through the
colouring.  A small crescent was still bright at the base of the globe.
I watched almost continually from my back deck in Duffy, until the crescent
at the base disappeared.  At this stage the moon appeared to be hanging
heavily in the air. I waited until a dim light started to gradually surround
the edges of the globe and the overall blood colour was fading.
Then back to bed feeling a bit cold.

Interestingly a large plane, probably chartered came in towards the moon
around 5.30am.  There were also a couple of falling stars which I wished

Wishing you all a happy and propitious day
