Time-lapse video captures a total lunar eclipse, also known as a “blood moon,” which was visible from the U.S. as it dipped into Earth’s shadow.

The moon passed into the Earth’s shadow before early on Saturday, turning most of the lunar surface a deep, blood-red color in a total lunar eclipse that lasted less than 10 minutes at its peak, making it the shortestof its kind this century.

This was the first total lunar eclipse of 2015 and the third in a series of four closely spaced total lunar eclipses — also known as a lunar tetrad. The fourth eclipse of the tetrad will occur on Sept. 28, 2015.
