Minnesotans who woke up early Wednesday morning were treated to a rare lunar eclipse.

Starting around 5:25 a.m., the full moon was obscured by Earth's shadow. It was a total lunar eclipse – except this time, the moon had a red tint because sunrises and sunsets around the Earth reflected off its surface. This is known as a blood moon.
