SLIDESHOW: Lunar eclipse in Myrtle Beach

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Several skywatchers stayed up late or woke up early to snap pictures of the second -- and final -- "blood moon" of the year.

A "blood moon" occurs when the reddish hue from a sunset or sunrise reflects onto the moon's surface during a full lunar eclipse, making the moon appear reddish-orange.

Some Myrtle Beach residents took pictures for more than two hours.

Trip DeForrest lives on the Intracoastal Waterway. He said he woke up at 5 a.m. and finished around 7 a.m. DeForrest said he used a Nikon camera with no editing or filters.
