The best (and worst) photos of the blood moon in Croatia

Yesterday, the much-hyped and spooky sounding ‘blood moon’ rose over Croatia, and locals from Zagreb to Split took to Instagram to capture the phenomenon. A 'blood moon' occurs when the Earth moves between the sun and the moon, called a full lunar eclipse. The moon is then illuminated by scattered light from the Earth’s atmosphere, giving our closest cosmic neighbour that distinctive red shade. People took some pretty spectacular snaps; others using old phone cameras didn't quite capture the etherealness of the evening. But hey, they tried.
