Evening viewers in much of Asia and early risers in parts of the Americas were treated to a spectacular lunar eclipse on Wednesday October 8, though clouds concealed it for some time.

The lucky ones saw the moon turn orange or red in what is known as a “blood moon.” The hue resulted from sunlight scattering off Earth’s atmosphere.
