An astronomical event decades in the making had everyone watching the sky Wednesday morning. On the East Coast, the super blue blood moon set around 7 a.m., but on the West Coast, skygazers had to set their alarms for at least 5 a.m. to see the show.

There was a lot packed into this event. It was a super moon because it turned full at the closest point to Earth in its orbit, known as perigee, appearing slightly bigger and about 14 percent brighter than normal. It was a blue moon because it is the second full moon occurring within the same month. And, most importantly, it was a blood moon because it passed through the Earth’s shadow in a lunar eclipse, which gave the moon a red hue.

From East to West, photographers braved the cold morning to catch the right shot. The Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles even created a time-lapse video from their perspective, so everyone could see what totality looked like (the East Coast missed out on that part).

Thanks to everyone who shared their photos and video of the eclipse!
