According to RTE, Astronomy Ireland says that the total part of the eclipse runs for 62 minutes from 4:41 am to 5:43 am on Monday morning when the Moon will be high in the West as seen from all of Ireland. This moon is also called as "blood moon" because of this red glow.

The pictures were taken by Nigel Bainton, who braved the bitter cold in the early hours of the morning to photograph the spectacle from Lowestoft Harbour. Also, this is called as ' supermoon' as the moon will appear bigger than normal because it is closer to the Earth - about 222,000 miles (358,000 kilometres) away.

A picture taken on January 21, 2019 in Cologne, Germany, shows the Super Blood Moon lunar eclipse above the landmark Dome.

He said that other eclipses will take place over the next number of years, "but they will happen as the Moon sets or rises from Ireland thus spoiling the view". Astronomers are particularly interested in this year's blood moon as it is the last of its kind for two years.

The "super blood wolf moon" was visible in parts of the United Kingdom this morning.

The next total lunar eclipse that's positioned over Canada won't be until May of 2021.
