Do you want to see tomorrow's rare Easter Weekend "Blood Moon" lunar eclipse? It may be slightly less rare than a blue moon, but its about to take place this holiday weekend.

Christians claim its Easter arrival is a sign from God, there’s a scientific explanation of the phenomenon for all you skeptics out there.

A blood moon is a total lunar eclipse, where the moon’s color turns to blood red. The color comes from the Earth’s dark shadow on the moon.

If you're in NY, then set your alarm for 6:36A Saturday morning and you get to witness the very beginning, with the West Coast, Japan and Russia getting it next.

It’s a quickie—lasting less than five minutes because most last about an hour. it will actually be the shortest eclipse in an entire century!

It’s the first of 2015’s two eclipses so don’t feel too bad if you accidentally sleep through it. The next one will arrive on Sept. 28.

If you’re a math whiz, you can predict the next eclipse! Or you can forget the convoluted scientific formula and just count out 9 years and 5.5 days from this one.

You'll have to look low in the western sky to see the eclipse. As with all lunar eclipses, its safe to look at the moon during the eclipse, unlike during solar eclipses. If you want to watch but don’t want to get out of bed, the eclipse will be streaming live on It will air from Eastern Australia, which will have a view even better than what you’ll see from the bright city skyline.
