While you were sleeping, the Internet never stopped. And it's amazing what the Internet comes up with.

Check out what people are tweeting, sharing and talking about.

Google Glass on sale Tuesday, for one day only

If you've been waiting for a chance to buy Google Glass, Tuesday is your lucky day. Beginning at 9 a.m. EDT, U.S. residents will be able to buy the Internet centimeters on a first come, first served basis.

Google Glass is not commercially sold yet. It's only been available for a select group called "Google Explorers" in a limited beta-testing program.

It will cost you $1,500 but Google is throwing in free frames or sunglasses. The sale is for one day only and supplies are limited.

To become a "Google Explorer," you must be a U.S. resident with a U.S. shipping address and over 18-years-old.

Skywatchers share #BloodMoonEclipse photos

Most of North America witnessed the moon turn to "blood" Monday night into early Tuesday morning.

A total lunar eclipse, also known as a "Blood Moon," began just after midnight. While it was too cloudy here in the Tri-State, it was seen in many parts across the U.S., Canada, Central America and parts of South America.

Just by searching #BloodMoon or #BloodMoonEclipse on Twitter or Instagram you'll find lots of pictures.

A full lunar eclipse happens when the entire moon is shaded by the earth and becomes a shade of red. FOX19 Meteorologist Jeff Creighton says we should expect to see three more in the next year and a half.

Cincinnatians cover Pharrell's 'Happy'

"Happy" is quite possibly is the catchiest song of the year, and whether you're sick of it or not, there's no denying it's positive message.

Singer Pharrell Williams was so "Happy" that he cried during a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey. He was so moved by a video shown to him of people dancing to his chart-topping song, he literally cried tears of joy.

Just by a quick YouTube search, you'll find many people have made their own covers.

A video was emailed to me on Monday featuring a local group of people dancing to the song at several Cincinnati landmarks. Produced by Zone Communications Group, it highlights the fun spirit of the Queen City.
