The 'Blood Moon' over Lake Huron

The 'Blood Moon', the rare third in a series of four, was clearly visible over Lake Huron.

Herman Roote, of Saugeen Ojibway Nation, caught the moon at 6:15 a.m. from a vantage point at Scubby's Point in Southampton (Saugeen Shores).

The total lunar eclipse lasted less than 10 minutes at its peak making it the shortest of its kind this century.

The eclipse occurs when the moon passes into the Earth's shadow with the result that the moon appears to be a deep, blood-red colour.
