Filipinos gazed the night sky on Wednesday to see a full moon turn red in a rare eclipse  that gave Pacific nations a celestial show.

The "Super Blood Moon,” the only total lunar eclipse of the year, happened at the same time the moon was closest to Earth, making the planet’s natural satellite look bigger than usual.

A total lunar eclipse happens when the Earth comes in between the Sun and the Moon, causing it to cast a shadow that gives the moon a reddish color.

PAGASA offered a live viewing of the event through its Facebook and YouTube pages for those who were unable to see it in person due to bad weather conditions.

Here are some photos of the Super Blood Moon:
