The moon, Earth and sun lined up last night in a full eclipse — the last until 2021.
Why it matters: During totality, the moon looked red because of sunlight scattering off Earth's atmosphere — a blood moon. And in January, the full moon is also sometimes known as the wolf moon or great spirit moon, the AP reports.
