Did You Miss the Blood Moon? Here Is the Only GIF You Need to See!

Those who stayed up into early Tuesday morning saw something strange in the sky. Instead of the familiar black-and-white moon, there was a red sphere that had a haunting quality to it. Thankfully we were expecting it, due to all the press leading up to this so-called blood moon, which happens during a total lunar eclipse. That would have been quite the shock if you didn't know what was coming. If you missed the crimson moon, we have a GIF that captures it all. And mark your calendars. There are three more eclipses this year — on April 29, Oct. 8, and Oct. 23. NASA says that's a rare occasion. You know: once in a red moon.
