Here on the Highveld in South Africa we were treated to the most spectacular visual treat of last night’s full moon.  Not only did we have the clearest sky, but we had a FULL eclipse.

This may not be the most spectacular quality photograph – but I also realise that there are many of you out there who would have only seen a partial eclipse or nothing at all.

I can only imagine how ominous this sight would have been in centuries past!
