By all accounts the ‘Super Blood Wolf Moon’ total lunar eclipse did not disappoint last night in Birmingham.

Despite temps in the mid 20s, photographers and skywatchers alike throughout the region snapped photos before and after the moon turned red during totality, which occurred at 11:12PM.

Below are photos by Bham Now readers and Birmingham residents that were posted on social media and sent to us through Facebook messenger. Many thanks for all the submissions!

This FB post by Barry Hamric, which was forwarded by several Bham Now readers, is beautiful and also accurate about the cold weather.
