Stargazers admire second total lunar eclipse of 2014

MILWAUKEE -- If you noticed a red color when you looked at the moon this morning, you weren't alone.


In fact, local stargazers rushed outside and to their windows to see the special cosmic event known as the \"Blood Moon\".


The earth casts its shadow on the moon as both line up with the sun, creating the lunar eclipse. This is the second total lunar eclipse of the year.


CBS 58's Matt Doyle has more on the eclipse from the Urban Ecology Center, where people are also awaiting the Draconid meteor shower, expected to peak Wednesday and Thursday.
