The moon entered the darkest part of the earth’s shadow at 4.23am, before turning a deep shade of blood-red in total eclipse at 5.22am.
The red hue is partially due to light scattering and also to the dust in the atmosphere.
Google’s home page had a doodle showing a live feed of the lunar eclipse from images from telescope service Slooh.
This eclipse was notable for several reasons, one of them is that the moon went right through the center of Earth's shadow.
Here are some photos and a video of the Lunar Eclipse:
