The first total eclipse of the year happened Wednesday as the Earth cast its shadow over the moon. At some moments, the lunar face turned a reddish-coppery brown, while at others it completely disappeared. The eclipse was the longest in nearly 11 years, delighting stargazers around the world for 100 minutes.

Below, watch NASA’s video of how the eclipse looked from the moon, and time lapse videos from people who caught the eclipse on camera in Greece and Bulgaria.

NASA released this video, which shows the view of the lunar eclipse from the moon:

In Bulgaria, one man caught the first part of the eclipse using a Samsung SMX-C10 and made this time lapse video.

A stargazer filmed this time lapse video of the eclipse in Greece at 10 p.m. local time during the final stages of the total lunar eclipse. The footage is time lapsed to +2000% normal speed and shot on a Sony EX1.:
