On Tuesday, April 15, skywatchers around the world were treated to 2014’s first total lunar eclipse also known as the ‘Blood Moon’.
The lunar eclipse got its name as during the eclipse, the moon’s hue ranges from bright orange to blood red, owing to the sunlight that seeps through the Earth’s atmosphere onto the moon’s face.
The eclipse, which peaked at 3 a.m. EDT, was visible from most of North and South America. It was the first of four consecutive total lunar eclipses, called a ‘tetrad,’ between April 2014 and September 2015.
The following images show how the phenomenon was seen in some parts of the world.
