Blood moon around the world (Pics)

People in many countries have caught a glimpse of a "blood moon" for the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st Century.

11In Greece, the moon rose behind the Temple of Poseidon in Cape Sounion, near Athens. In a lunar eclipse, the Earth stands between its natural satellite and the Sun.

12Although no longer directly illuminated by the Sun, the moon still catches light filtered and bent by the Earth's atmosphere. This gives it an orange, brown or red colour.The eclipse will have been visible from Africa to the Middle East, Europe, Russia, India, and Australia.

13In Strasbourg, France, the Moon could be seen looming over this sculpture by the American artist Jonathan Borofsky.

14Here in the Swiss Alps it could be observed in all its glory.

15No protective eye gear was necessary to observe the eclipse.

16As the Moon passed over Abu Dhabi, it could be seen behind the minarets of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

17In Sydney, crowds gathered to watch the Moon turn red above the city's distinctive skyline.
