Will Rise on #Passover
Will you be up watching it tonight?
The moon will begin to change color at about 1:58 a.m. ET Tuesday as it starts to slide into the Earth's shadow until it becomes a "blood moon" at 3:07 ET, NASA says. The best part of the show, the total eclipse portion, will last through 4:24 a.m. ET.
The height of the event will take place at 3:45 a.m. ET.
This one is just the first in a series of four consecutive total lunar eclipses.
Within a year and a half, North Amerisca will be able to see a blood moon a total of four times.
The four blood moons will occur in roughly six-month intervals on the following dates: April 15, 2014; October 8, 2014; April 4, 2015, and September 28, 2015.
