A total lunar eclipse turned the moon a reddish hue early Tuesday morning in Oklahoma.

The so-called "blood moon" happened when the earth passed between the sun and the moon, creating a shadow on the moon's surface.

This eclipse between 2 a.m. and 3:30 a.m. marked the beginning of a tetrad, a series of four total lunar eclipses in a row.

The next three total eclipses will occur on October 8, 2014, April 4, 2015, and the final one on September 28, 2015.

News 9 viewers submitted several photos of the eclipse on our SHARE page. Send us your photos at
