In pictures: The first full moon and lunar eclipse of the new decade

Skygazers have enjoyed the first full moon and eclipse of the decade.

Friday evening saw a penumbral lunar eclipse, which sees the moon darkened by the Earth's outer shadow.

This is different from a total lunar eclipse, where the Earth blocks the sun's light from reaching the moon.

Friday's penumbral lunar eclipse — said to give the moon a tea-stained colour — was visible from around 18h CET to 22h, mainly in Europe and Asia.

Here are some of the best pictures from last night.
