The red supermon moved into a full lunar eclipse at around 5 a.m. on May 26. Those that woke up early enough could see the dramatic view just before clouds converged, blocking the view in most areas as the moon set behind the Colorado mountains.
The next major astronomical event will come with the Perseids meteor shower, set to arrive July 17-Aug. 26.
