Total Lunar Eclipse

While a lunar eclipse isn't on par with the solar eclipse of this summer, it is still a relatively rare event, one worth seeing. Below is all the information you will need to see the entire total eclipse of the moon.

What you won't see is the moon disappearing behind the Earth's umbral shadow as the sun did during the solar eclipse. During the lunar eclipse the direct sunlight hitting the moon is blocked by the earth's shadow and the moon turns blood red as the light only indirectly hits it.
