It was great, luckily the weather was good enough to see it. Out of interest, how often does it occur?
Every year there are at least two lunar eclipses.
Usually visible in one hemisphere or the other, for example the next one will not be visible in Europe until 2008, but the next one for Australia, NZ and Alaska is 28 August as written here:
After Saturday's eclipse, the next to be seen over western Europe will take place on 21 February 2008, but late in the night between 0300 GMT and 0400 GMT.
And though eastern Australia, Alaska and New Zealand missed out on this total lunar eclipse, they will be able to see the next one, due to take place on 28 August.
