Millions of people were greeted last night with a strange celestial sighting, the “blood moon” lunar eclipse. The phenomenon occurs when the moon passes into the earth’s shadow and, for about an hour, takes on a reddish hue from the sunlight being refracted around the earth’s horizon.
Due to cloud cover over much of North America, many people, particularly on the east coast, didn’t get a chance to see the blood moon Tuesday morning. Don’t worry though, we’ve got a time lapse of the event for you right here.
