World sees last total lunar eclipse before 2014

Stargazers delight in rare celestial show, in which earth casts shadow over the moon, turning it red.

    Stargazers from Australia to North America have been enjoying the last total lunar eclipse before 2014.

    It was the second time this year that the earth cast its shadow over the moon, with only indirect sunlight illuminating our planet's only natural satellite and turning it red. The celestial show lasted for several hours on Saturday.
