Finally around 2245a view between scudding clouds from West Somerset, near Minehead. Moon now halfway out of umbra so at first glance appears to be at third quarter. Closer obs over next half hour between more cloudbanks showed umbra covered part as a deep copper-red colour. Sadly, I have no camera handy to record an image with any reasonable detail. The view must have been really good from a cloud-free site.
