In Case You Missed It: Amazing Pics From the Blood Moon Eclipse

If you were up between 2-4:30 a.m. EST, and especially if you live in the western half of the U.S., than you may have been lucky enough to witness the first in series of lunar eclipses anticipated over the two years.

Between now and next September, we’ll get three more chances to see a blood moon in North America. Next up: October 8. Mark your calendars and in the meantime, check out these stunning images from the first eclipse in the series scientists are calling a tetrad.
