A super moon and an eclipse at 2am to 3am early on Monday 29th September and clear skies are forecast.

The full eclipse (viewed from Southampton) will be from 3:15am to 4:20am (BST).

Although I suppose if you want to see the transition, that will mostly be between 2 and 3am.

The moonlight woke me up last night it was so bright..... clear skies over Scotland tonight again so this is too good to miss - we've set the alarm for 2.30 and we'll wake up the kids so they can have a memory of it.

Last one was 30 years ago and the next one in 2033, but what is the chance in 2033 of a clear sky which is what we have almost all over the UK tonight.

So from the UK it is a once in a lifetime sort of event.

I watched the eclipse and saw the reddish ring, very unusual.

It was a beautiful night, totally clear and fresh. Surprisingly I saw no satellites flying round, there are hundreds of them now but none showed last night.

I remember camping in the Falkland Islands without a tent in 1983, just in a bivvy bag lying in the open, and we watched several every night from horizon, over the top and down to the other horizon over a flat landscape.
