This weekend on January 20, a total lunar eclipse will occur. The eclipse, which can be seen from both North and South America, will turn the Moon a dark shade of red. This phenomena is know as a “Blood Moon” and happens roughly twice every three years. In addition to the red hue, the Moon will also be slightly closer to the Earth than normal, thus giving it the title of a “Super Moon.”

At 8:36 p.m. the Moon will start to darken. The full Blood Moon will emerge at approximately 10:41 p.m. and then immediately start to lighten until 1:48 a.m. concluding the eclipse.
