Blood moon: Did you see the first total lunar eclipse of the year on Tuesday morning?
Posted on April 15, 2014 at 9:46 a.m.

Despite a cloudy night and falling snow, if you were looking outside just after 3 a.m., you could have seen the total lunar eclipse turn the moon red on Tuesday.

The Elkhart Truth's videographer captured the so-called blood moon around 4:08 a.m. on the north side of Elkhart. While it was very cloudy for most of the morning, a break in the clouds allowed her to capture the photograph you see above.
