The Blood Moon Video, for Folks on the East Coast

On Saturday morning, people in the western US and Canada were able to observe a 5-minute total lunar eclipse and a so-called "blood moon."

Here in the East, we caught only a partial eclipse.

NASA says this was the shortest eclipse of this type -- where the Earth's shadow obliterates our view of the moon -- of the century, according to CNN.

You can see why it's called a blood moon about halfway through this video. The moon takes on a slightly reddish hue during eclipses.

NASA says the fourth of this series of four eclipses will come September 28.
