The lunar eclipse, or blood moon, lived up to the hype Friday.
That even goes for us in the Northeast, where it was not visible, thanks to NASA producing a steady live stream of the event.
They featured various images and visuals from the International Space Center and from observatories and sites around the earth where the lunar eclipse could be viewed.
NASA has a series of primers on the science . . . as well as upcoming celestial events to watch for.

An earlier post from Friday continues below.
NASA says the lunar eclipse will be visible in all major land areas with the exception of North and Central America.
But they've got a web and TV app for that.
The eclipse is scheduled to start at 1:14 p.m., with the moon fully eclipsed between 3:30 p.m. and 5:13 p.m.
NASA TV will have live views of the eclipse starting at 2:15 p.m., Eastern Time.
