Total Lunar Eclipse Will Turn the Moon Blood Red (Video)

Post by Kitkat on Mon 6 Oct 2014 - 11:34

Skywatchers across much of the world will have the chance to see the moon glowing with an eerie red pallor during a pre-Halloween total lunar eclipse next week.

The "blood moon" total lunar eclipse will rise during the full moon of Oct. 8 just before sunrise in North America, but red might not be the only color people see during the total eclipse. Weather permitting, it's possible that some sharp-eyed observers might be able to see some blue in the moon's glow. The event will be  the second of four consecutive total lunar eclipses in 2014 and 2015, according to NASA officials.
