A lunar eclipse with a deep red blood moon crossed the night sky Sunday night into Monday morning, providing a dramatic, multi-part show for stargazers.

The Moon was entirely wrapped in Earth’s shadow at the time, temporarily making it a deep shade of dark red.

Because the Moon will be at its nearest approach to Earth in its orbit, it will look bigger than usual, getting it the name super Moon.

It is also known as a super flower blood Moon. A full moon in May is known as the Flower Moon in the Northern Hemisphere because it corresponds with the blooming of spring flowers.

The eclipse lasted for roughly five hours in total, with totality lasting around 85 minutes. According to Ernest Wright, a graphics system specialist at NASA, this is lengthier than most.

The Americas was treated to the entire spectacle up to 84 minutes. Those living in western United States or Canada viewed the moonrise on Sunday evening.

It could be seen with the naked eye, but binoculars or a small telescope bring out the red color.
