Sue Schuermann snapped this photo of Tuesday morning’s lunar eclipse from her northeast Columbia subdivision around 4:50 a.m. Schuermann, a librarian at MU, said she brought her camera and tripod into the middle of her street in Sunrise Estates to photograph the red-tinted moon.

According to NASA, a lunar eclipse can only take place when there is a full moon, and only if the moon passes through some portion of Earth’s shadow.
