Did you miss last week’s blood moon? Check out this awesome time-lapse photo

Blood Moon Photo GIF

Last week’s rare blood moon eclipse was amazing, but it also took place in the middle of the night so most people in the U.S. probably missed it. But there is no need to fret, of course — that’s why Al Gore invented the Internet.

We have all undoubtedly seen photos of the blood moon eclipse that took place in the wee hours of the morning on April 15th. It was the first of four coming eclipses where the moon will glow red in the sky, so three more opportunities to catch one are coming.

Those who don’t feel like waiting for October to see the next blood moon are in luck though, because Wired posted a great little GIF on Monday evening that shows a time-lapse of the entire lunar event.

The GIF includes 128 frames in all, and it follows below:

The next three blood moon eclipses will occur on October 8th of this year, and then on April 4th and September 28th in 2015.
