It doesn’t happen often, but this one is likely to be the most photographed lunar eclipse in history. Marcia Dunn:
North and South America, get ready for the first eclipse of the year— in color. Next Tuesday morning, the moon will be eclipsed by Earth’s shadow. This total lunar eclipse will be visible across the Western Hemisphere. The total phase will last 78 minutes.
How does the moon get a color eclipse?
Even though the moon is in the Earth’s shadow, it should appear a bit colorful, some shade of red or orange. That’s from light around the edges of the Earth — essentially sunrises and sunsets — splashing on the lunar surface and faintly lighting up the moon
Set your alarms and get the camera ready.
