Sky gazers had quite the view early this morning. The lunar eclipse was visible from the Western Slope which started just before 3 a.m. and was visible for about an hour and a half.
A lunar eclipse happens when the Earth passes between the sun and moon, casting a shadow upon the moon. This is the second lunar eclipse of this year.
