See photos from last night's super blood moon

Last night thousands of New Yorkers met on roofs, parks and stoops to join the rest of the western hemisphere watching the lunar eclipse. The total eclipsed moon reflected the sunbeams coming across the earth's edges, like a sunset, which gives a rich, reddish hue that led many to refer to the occasion as a "blood moon."  While eclipses are always a dazzling astronomical event, this one was also a super moon—a full moon when the orbit is closest to the earth, which gives it a slightly larger appearance. If you missed the event last night you'll have to wait another 30 years for the next super blood moon, but during that long wait you can at least appreciate these photos of the phenomenon from Instagram.
