CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Submit your photos of the lunar eclipse!

Were you able to get a glimpse of the total lunar eclipse overnight, without using a telescope or special glasses?

This rare event occurs when the earth is positioned between the moon and the sun, blocking most of the sunlight from hitting the moon, making the moon appear to look gray, pink, and orange, according to the Cincinnati Observatory.

It was a total lunar eclipse for about 90 minutes, ending early Monday.
