Folks who were up overnight got a chance to see the first eclipse of the year.

On Tuesday morning, the moon was eclipsed by the Earth's shadow. The moon's appearance changed to a blood red color, or in some cases looked bright orange or dark brown.

The lunar eclipse was visible across the Western Hemisphere.

If you missed out, put April 29 on your calendar. That's when the Southern Hemisphere will be treated to a rare type of solar eclipse.
