Lunar Eclipse #BloodMoon (GIF)

The best Lunar Eclipse 2014 GIF I've seen

The best Lunar Eclipse 2014 GIF I’ve seen

If you were like me and burning the midnight oil last night, you likely ventured outside to see what social media was talking about: a rare lunar eclipse that also earned the trending hashtag #bloodmoon because the moon would look red. As you can see above, in the best GIF I’ve seen (shared by Manu Ginobili of all people), the timelapse of the moon’s transformation is simply beautiful.

On the cool Lunar Eclipse photo scale, the GIF likely beats out my distant Instagram photo, but falls behind the Snapchat I sent people at 2 in the morning. Hey, I couldn’t get a better picture. It was cold in Chicago… having just snowed. *quadruple checks calendar*
