Time-Lapse of 'Blood Moon' and Lunar Eclipse

If you lived in Europe or Africa — or if you’re in the US and the thought of getting up between 2 and 5 in the morning repelled you — you probably missed this week’s total lunar eclipse and ‘blood moon.’ But have no fear, because Griffith Observatory in LA captured a close-up (if a bit shaky) time-lapse of the entire rust-colored event for you. The video, which you can see above, could use a bit of stabilization, but the phenomenon is pretty incredible nonetheless. And it turns out Griffith was one of the luckiest observatories for having such an unobstructed view. via Petal Pixel.
