SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) - Did you get up and take a look at the eclipse?

Siouxland had a perfect, unobscured, clear sky view of the full lunar eclipse early Tuesday morning.  The celestial show began about 2:00 am.

An hour later, the moon was fully in the shadow of the earth.  It started to emerge from the eclipse about 3:30.  It's called a "Blood Moon" because of the orange-red glow associated with the eclipse.

NASA says we won't see another full lunar eclipse in the United States again until 2019.
