Tuesday morning’s “blood moon” was just that and more. Over Hubbard County, this photo was taken of the lunar eclipse about 2:30 a.m. In a total lunar eclipse, the full moon turns a coppery red as it passes into Earth's shadow. During the process, the moon's bright glow dims, taking on a red hue because of shimmers of sunlight and sunsets seeping through the Earth's atmosphere.
