See Gorgeous Pics of the #SuperBlueBloodMoon Eclipse

The Super Blue Blood Moon eclipse occurred in the wee hours today (Jan. 31), and it did not disappoint. For those with clear skies, and in the right location, the moon slowly inched into the central portion of Earth's shadow, called the umbra, revealing a red-hued ball hanging above the horizon. East Coasters were treated to a partial eclipse, as the full eclipse (when the moon ducked completely into Earth's shadow) occurred when our satellite was below the horizon. Here's a look at some of the best shots being shared online.

Standing outside barefoot for an hour may not have been the smartest idea, but I'd say it was worth it. #SuperBlueBloodMoon pic.twitter.com/RZjWSaUbqX

Are you watching the #SuperBlueBloodMoon #IRL or live online? It’s happening now, so don’t miss it! Earth will continue to block the Sun’s light, casting a reddish hue onto the Moon until around 9:07am ET/6:07am PT. Take a look: https://t.co/r6X6SoMfLn pic.twitter.com/J9UfDz2NTF
