SAN DIEGO – It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a… blood moon?

People all across the world turned their eyes to the sky Sunday evening as a total lunar eclipse created a red-hued moon.

According to, a lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth falls perfectly in line between the sun and the moon, casting a shadow on the moon’s surface.

While these types of natural phenomenons typically come once every two to three years according to Live Science, North America will most likely see a second event in 2022, slated to take place on Nov. 8.

Of course, FOX 5 viewers were out and about Sunday evening, snapping pictures of the special moon. Below, you can see some of the compiled photos of the total lunar eclipse submitted to FOX 5:
