Stargazers were out in force across the world on Monday to try and catch a glimpse of a total lunar eclipse.

Although it is a total eclipse, the moon will never go completely dark but rather take on a coppery red glow, a blood moon. It is also a full moon that is especially close to Earth, called a supermoon.

Unlike a solar eclipse, which requires eye protection to safely enjoy the view, no extra measures need to be taken for hazard-free lunar eclipse watching.
