No I didn't Colin.  Saw nothing of it from here.  As you say you only get the blood red effect during totality, when the atmosphere of the earth is belt around to create the effect. Some amazing images about of it though!

I'm a little sore at the moment.  Took a fall last Monday.  finally went to A&E on Saturday as my side was so painful.  Semes I've cracked a rib!

Did you manage to get any photos Geoff or was visibility too poor??  :(
As I said above visibility good initially and when moon was 50% eclipsed colour was more coal black rather than blood red but perhaps the colouration only fully apparent when totally eclipsed.🤔🤔

Some other shots from around the World.
See :- https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-46943592

Had great visibility in Milford till about 04-20hrs then 100% cloud cover.

The photos below are hardly an outstanding technical success but you can "just" about see an eclipse is happening!!!  ;) :) ;) :)

So no sign of the moon at 5.00am this morning.  Typical Pembrokeshire weather!  So here is a composite of images taken of the March 2007 eclipse of th moon when the weather was kinder.
