The Moon is normally illuminated by the Sun. During a total lunar eclipse, the full Moon passes through the shadow created by the Earth blocking the Sun's light.

Some indirect sunlight can pierce through and give the Moon a dramatic shade of red.

The west coast of America saw the eclipse start on Monday night; observers in North and Central America were able to view the whole event.
