Stunning Super Flower Blood Moon graces night sky

A total lunar eclipse stretched Sunday night’s sky into early Monday morning, providing a longer-than-usual thrill for stargazers across North and South America.

NASA shows the moon bathed in red and orange reflections of sunsets and sunrises on Earth, lasting for about an hour and a half.

It was one of the longest totals in the decade and the first so-called “blood moon” in a year.

Observers in the eastern half of North America and all of Central and South America already have key seats for the entire show, weather permitting.

Partial phases of the lunar eclipse are visible across Africa, Europe and the Middle East.

A total solar eclipse occurs when the Earth passes directly between the moon and the sun, and casts a shadow over our constant cosmic companion.

The moon is expected to be 225,000 miles (362,000 km) away at the height of the lunar eclipse.
