    A lunar eclipse will last much longer than a solar eclipse. The lunar eclipse was visible to most of North America, provided the skies were clear.

Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- At 12:58 a.m. Tuesday the Moon slipped into the Earth's shadow. The Moon continued to darken during the total phase (2:06-3:24 a.m.) before lightening again after 4 a.m.

A lunar eclipse will last much longer than a solar eclipse. The lunar eclipse was visible to most of North America, provided the skies were clear.

Across the Northland people saw brilliant views. We will be able to see the “Blood Moon” three more times in the next year. The next three blood moons will occur in about six-month intervals on the following dates: October 8, 2014, April 4, 2015 and September 28, 2015.

If you have pictures of the lunar eclipse then we'd like to see them! You can send your photos to pictures@nncnow.com with the subject ‘Blood Moon’.
