    The first lunar eclipse of 2014


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     tolgin, an astronomer, photographed Tuesday's lunar eclipse and blood moon in front of his apartment in Tucson, Arizona. He actually hadn't been planning on venturing out to photograph the eclipse. "It was a spur-of-the-moment decision," he said. "I was working on a paper and decided to take a break outside with my camera."
    - Verybecoming, CNN iReport producer

    The first lunar eclipse of the year falls on the tax day. The bright star in the photo to the lower right of the moon is Spica, the brightest star in the constellation of Virgo.


    The next lunar eclipse will be on October 8, visible from almost the entire United States including Alaska and Hawaii, except for places in the extreme Northeast.
