WATCH: Last Night's Rare and Beautiful Lunar Eclipse

If you (like moi) couldn't bring yourself to leave your warm bed at 2:30 in the morning to see last night's lunar eclipse, here's a good video of the action. Watch as the moon turns into a giant red orb for the first time in 372 years! Turn off all the lights and play it full screen, and it'll almostbe like you were watching it live -- minus the freezing temperatures. (H/T New Yorkmagazine) 

And here are some bonus photos from the Huffington Post.
