Last night, the world stopped and looked up to catch a glimpse of the long-awaited "super blood wolf eclipse."

The unique and beautiful astronomical event was the combination of several factors: first, the moon passed into the shadow of Earth, creating a full lunar eclipse.

The fact that there was a “super moon” on the same night, when the full moon was at its closest point to earth, only made it look even more striking.

During the eclipse, the moon was also bathed in red light reflected through Earth’s atmosphere, hence the "blood moon." Finally, a traditional Native American name for January full moons made this a "wolf moon."

Whatever you call it, the sight was beautiful and widely visible around the world, which made for plenty of incredible photos. Here are some of our favorites:
