Under a Blood Moon: 1st Total Lunar Eclipse of 2014 Wows Stargazers (Photos)  
Space.com - April 15, 2014

The moon took on an eerie blood-red hue early Tuesday during the first total lunar eclipse of 2014, a celestial sight that wowed potentially millions of stargazers across North and South America. The total lunar eclipse of April 15 lasted about 3.5 hours between late Monday and early Tuesday, with the Earth's shadow slowing darkening the face of the so-called "Blood Moon" in a jaw-dropping sight for stargazers willing to stay up extra late or rise super-early for the event.

I woke up during the eclipse, so that I could experience the beauty and energies.

There are always earthquakes during an eclipse. Idaho is not far from Yellowstone. Keep following the map above.

4.9-magnitude earthquake rattles central Idaho   USA Today - April 15, 2014
A 4.9-magnitude earthquake shook central Idaho, flinging items off walls and scaring residents but otherwise producing no reported damage or injuries in the sparsely populated mountain area. USGS geophysicist Dale Grant says the earthquake was "kind of an unusual occurrence" being the first one of its strength in the area since 2005. But he said even minor damage is unlikely because of the remote location. It struck 8 miles northwest of Challis, a town of around 1,000 less than 200 miles northeast of Boise.
