The Moon slipped into Earth's shadow resulting in a nearly full lunar eclipse for almost two hours.
It actually turned out to be a triple treat for star- gazers and backyard astronomers, the comet was visible after sundown followed later by the eclipse and because the Earth is between Mars and the sun, the red planet was extra bright.
