The eclipse began at 1:46 a.m. PT on Wednesday, with the moon entering the darkest part of Earth’s shadow at 2:45 a.m., according to NASA. Part of the moon was in shadow until 5:53 a.m.
The flaming orange moon dazzled as it hovered over the Pacific sky as well as over the western half of North America, parts of South America and eastern Asia. The red-orange color of the “blood” super moon results from all sunrises and sunsets in the Earth’s atmosphere projected onto the surface of the eclipsed moon.
