North Branch resident Mark Olson took this photo of Tuesday’s lunar eclipse.

According to local meteorologists, the eclipse began at 12:58 a.m., and the moon was totally eclipsed by the Earth’s shadow at 2:06 a.m. It stayed eclipsed for an hour and 20 minutes.

Sunlight filtering through the earth’s atmosphere resulted in the moon having a dark orange or red color.
