Blood Moon Greats Early Risers
Millions of people throughout the United States and here in Idaho had a front-row seat for the show: a lunar eclipse that made the moon look a burnt reddish-orange.
The"blood moon," as it's called, was the second of the year.
The full eclipse started at about 4:25 a.m. and lasted until about 5:24 a.m.
Because it happened right after the perigee -- when the moon is closest in its orbit to Earth -- this blood moon was nearly the size of a super moon, appearing more than 5% larger than the blood moon that happened in April.
