Partial lunar eclipse visible across Wales

Across Wales stargazers gathered on Tuesday evening to view a partial lunar eclipse.

The eclipse was seen from moon rise, from approximately 9.07pm until around 1.17am, and coincided with the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 launching its moon mission.

There were clear skies across much of the country.

A lunar eclipse happens when the Moon passes into the Earth’s shadow when the pair and the Sun are aligned.
