Photos / Total lunar eclipse creates 'bloody moon'
The red moon shone on Sunday night and the first hours of Monday, after a total lunar eclipse that saw the sun, Earth and moon form a straight line in the night sky.
During a total lunar eclipse, the moon passes through the darkest part of the Earth's shadow - the ombre. When the moon is inside the shadow, it takes on a reddish tinge because blue and green light are more easily dispersed by dust particles in the atmosphere and the orange and red colors remain more visible, according to NASA.
Lunar eclipses are also called "bloody moons" because of this phenomenon.

September 10: Harvest Moon
