CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — This morning’s total lunar eclipse is the last one for three years.

Tuesday’s total lunar eclipse was be visible throughout North America in the predawn hours. Asia, Australia and the rest of the Pacific can catch it after sunset. Totality will last nearly 1 1/2 hours as Earth passes directly between the moon and sun. The so-called blood moon will appear red from the light of Earth’s sunsets and sunrises. At the peak of the eclipse, the moon will be more than 242,000 miles away.

The next total lunar eclipse won’t be until 2025.
