A total lunar eclipse will turn the moon a reddish hue overnight and should be visible across most of the country.
This will happen in the early morning hours on Tuesday -- peaking between the hours of 2 AM and 3:30 AM. The cosmic color change will be perfectly placed for most viewers in North America.
Unlike a solar eclipse, a lunar eclipse is safe to watch with the naked eye. As the Earth positions itself between the sun and the moon, a reddish hue will surround the moon due to the indirect sunlight that manages to reach and illuminate it.
Let's hope for clearing skies overnight!
