Skygazers in parts of the UK lucky enough to be under clear skies and brave enough to head outdoors in freezing temperatures were treated to the astronomical spectacle of a “super blood wolf moon” on Monday.

The rare phenomenon, caused in part by a lunar eclipse, makes the surface of the moon appear a reddish hue, while seeming brighter and closer to earth than normal.

A super blood wolf moon occurs when a blood moon and supermoon happen simultaneously and was best seen from the UK at around 5.10am – providing clouds did not obstruct the view.

While the supermoon and blood moon titles come from the brightness and reddish colour respectively, a full moon in January is sometimes called a “wolf” moon.

Professional photographers and amateurs alike shared their photographs of the rare celestial event, although some were more successful than others.

My attempt at the SuperBloodWolfMoon just before totality when it was at it's reddest and then after totality.

The race to 5G is hotting up, and O2 has nailed its colours to the (phone) mast by announcing that it will launch its 5G network in the UK this year.

The company has chosen "four corners of the UK" to kick off the high-speed rollout: Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London.

In other words, a major city in each of the four component countries of the UK.

Makes a change from just going "Eh, London will do" and calling it a day.

Those four cities will get O2 5G later this year, whereas everywhere else will have to wait 'til 2020.

Realistically, most of us aren't going to have 5G phones this year anyway, so it's not a huge loss.

Gale force winds are set to bring misery to parts of Britain.

A Met Office yellow weather warning has been issued for Scotland meaning that “very strong winds” are expected to hit on Monday and Tuesday.

The rest of the UK will remain largely cloudy, with some patchy rain in the north.

The Met Office suggests that gusts of up to 75mph are expected and it could bring possible travel disruption.

The warning reads: “Very strong winds are expected to affect northern and parts of eastern Scotland on Monday and Monday night.

“Gusts of 65 to 75 mph are likely, particularly in the far north and northeast, before winds gradually ease from the west during Tuesday.”

Revolut is a bit of a weird one.

It emerged at the same time as the rest of the UK’s app-based challenger banks, like Monzo and Starling Bank, but has tread a completely different path.

Unlike its biggest rivals, Revolut has fingers in a lot of pies.

Beyond its current account offerings, it also does cheap international money transfers, and lets users buy and sell cryptocurrencies.

And now, the company is launching a commission-free share trading platform, allowing anyone to invest in listed companies, without paying steep fees.

Revolut also wants to let users purchase other instruments like ETFs (exchange traded funds) and options.

At a time when digital technologies are transforming the economy and the way we live our lives, Britain’s creative industries are at the heart of the country’s competitive advantage and are a crucial part of the future economy.

Looking forward ten, twenty or thirty years we need booming creative industries to not only create jobs and growth across the country, but continue to be at the centre of our productivity and global success.

The cultural and creative sectors are the engine of the UK’s international image and soft power.

Creative Industries influence and help shape how the rest of the world sees us.

The industry is helping to forge trading links in emerging economies across the globe, influencing wider perceptions of the UK.

From Harry Potter to Grand Theft Auto, Saatchi & Saatchi to Savile Row, Adele to Alexander McQueen, our creative industries are selling ‘brand Britain’ abroad and are a source of pride here at home.

"This will undoubtedly be the most challenging of the G7 meeting in years," said European council president Donald Tusk, the summit's inaugural speech.

Hardly, according to the European and U.s. differences over issues debated are undeniable.
