Photos of Sunday night’s lunar eclipse from all around the world
A total lunar eclipse glowed red in the night sky on Sunday night, the last of its kind anywhere in the world until 2021.
People across North America, South America, western Europe and western Africa were able to see the moon change color as it passed directly through Earth's shadow.
Those in the northeastern United States braved temperatures in the single digits and teens with winds pushing AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures below zero F to see the spectacle. The sky cleared just in time for most of the region to view the eclipse in the wake of a snowstorm.
Some lunar eclipse viewing parties were canceled in the central and eastern U.S. due to icy roadways and bitterly cold conditions, according to Reuters.

Clouds broke just in time for the eclipse to be seen in Los Angeles, but rain spoiled the show in San Francisco, while clouds hung over San Diego.
Pictures on social media showed clear viewing conditions across portions of Costa Rica, Brazil, Italy, France and British Columbia, Canada, among many other areas.
This particular eclipse was given the unofficial nickname of the 'Super Blood Wolf Moon,' despite looking like any other total lunar eclipse. This long-winded name derived from three nicknames being combined into one.
The next time that a total lunar eclipse will be visible anywhere in the world will not be until May 26, 2021. However, there will be five partial lunar eclipses before then.
