(WREG-TV) For many in the MidSouth skies were too cloudy to see the Blood Moon but elsewhere the view was spectacular.

The moon took on a reddish hue as it appeared in different phases between 1 and 3:30 a.m. Memphis time.

In North and South America, where the blood moon was most prominent, observers pointed at the spectacle with binoculars, telescopes and cellphones.

Depending on time zones, it started late Monday night or in the wee hours of Tuesday morning. Showers and clouds rendered it a bust in some cities, including Atlanta.

In Los Angeles, the chance to view the total lunar eclipse lured thousands to the Griffith Observatory.

Families spread out blankets on the grass to take in views from dozens of telescopes set up like a stand of small trees.

North America will see a blood moon four times, known as a tetrad, between now and September of next year.

In addition to Tuesday, it will make another appearance on October 8 of this year, and April 4 and September 28 of next year.

Miss those, and you’ll have to wait until 2032.
