Blood Moon

The moon passed through Earth's shadow on Oct. 8, 2014, marking a total lunar eclipse, the second of 2014, in a stunning blood moon. This Full Moon will be completely caught in Earth's shadow, known as its Umbra. At the onset of the eclipse, the moon will gradually become a rusty red color, known as a Blood Moon. It can be seen worldwide, but those in North America and South America will get the best view. The eclipse is expected to last about 80 minutes.
