Lunar eclipses occur when the moon is in the "full moon" stage and passes through part or all of the Earth's shadow, darkening the moon's typically bright glow. During a total lunar eclipse, the moon is entirely immersed in Earth's shadow, and can take on a dusky "blood red" color, due to the scattering of sunlight through the edges of the Earth's atmosphere. Such moons are sometimes nicknamed "Blood Moons"...(FOX NEWS SCIENCE)
Last night's lunar eclipse was the first of four total lunar eclipses to occur between April 2014 and September 2015. If you missed last night's happening, the next will take place on October 8th, and is also expected to be visible from much of North America.
