Despite fears it might be too cloudy, the partial eclipse which turned part of the moon a rich orange colour, was seen in Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, Martlesham and Shotley Gate.

Last night was our final chance to see a partial lunar eclipse until November, 2021.

Caroline Hall from Chelmondiston grabbed her camera and rushed outside to take a picture of the partial eclipse. She said: "It was lovely that it happened on the anniversary of the moon landing which I watched with fascination, but some sorrow that our lovely old moon had now been trodden on by a man) on the television as a 14 year old."

In Martlesham Charlotte Bond spotted the Eclipse with her boyfriend, she said: " The half darkened half glowing moon, cast from the earth's shadow during the Lunar Eclipse last night. It was a spectacular sight to witness, what a brilliant way to mark the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11!"
