Skywatchers both in Alabama and across much of the world were treated to something special Sunday night.

The Super Blood Wolf Moon was easily visible across the state of Alabama thanks to clear, but cold conditions.

Hundreds of students and others packed onto the roof of Gallalee Hall on the University of Alabama’s campus for a public lunar eclipse viewing. Attendees got the chance to see – and photograph -- the phenomenon up close and personal thanks to a variety of telescopes at the university observatory.
