Early risers across much of the world are in for a treat on Wednesday morning – a total lunar eclipse, also known as a “blood moon” due to the coppery, reddish colour the moon takes as it passes into Earth’s shadow.
The total eclipse is the second of four over a two-year period that began on 15 April and concludes on 28 September 2015. The so-called tetrad is unusual because the full eclipses are visible in all or parts of the United States, according to the retired Nasa astrophysicist Fred Espenak.
Weather permitting, Wednesday’s eclipse should be visible to skywatchers in North America, Australia, western South America and parts of East Asia. The eclipse should reach totality just before sunrise, at 6.25 am ET (1025 GMT).
If cloudy skies are a problem, both Nasa.gov and Slooh.com will be hosting live webcasts. Nasa’s begins at 3am ET and Slooh’s at 5am ET.
