If you were asleep early Wednesday when the sun and moon gave much of the world a rare "blood moon" lunar eclipse, or your view of the moon was obscured by clouds, the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles has you covered. In fact, this time-lapse video of the eclipse is probably better than the view you had (or would have had) from your yard or balcony. --Peter Weber
