Take a look at the rare "Super Blood Moon" lunar eclipse captured in pictures from Asia-Pacific.

A total lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes completely through Earth's dark shadow, or umbra. During this type of eclipse, the moon will gradually get darker, taking on a rusty or blood-red color. The color is so striking that lunar eclipses are sometimes called Blood Moons.
