Harvest moon on high before a lunar eclipse

Above: A full moon high above Silsden the evening before a lunar eclipse, which took place in the early hours of September 28. The 'supermoon' was at perigree -- its closest point to the earth in 2015. The harvest moon had followed the autumn equinox, on September 23.
Above: still a full moon over Silsden on the evening of September 28.
