Last night the earth witnessed on of the most amazing lunar occurrences in modern history.

Unfortunately, much of the world saw an unusual amount of cloud cover last night, but there were some dedicated photographers that went to extreme lengths to get some amazing shots.
Here are the top 10 taken last night;
