Early risers were able to see the year's second total lunar eclipse on Tuesday.
It began just before 6 a.m., Central time.
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth passes between the sun and moon, casting a shadow across the moon's surface. The moon should appear to slowly turn shades of orange and red.
Lunar eclipses are rare because the moon is usually either above or below the plane of Earth's orbit, but one took place just this past March.
