Blood moon tomorrow morning

If you live somewhere in the western portion of the US, you will have the best view of a lunar eclipse that will turn the moon a burnt reddish orange for about an hour. This natural light show creates the second blood moon in relatively short succession. The full eclipse will start at 6:25A. ET, NASA says, and last until 7:24A ET.

TONIGHT: Lunar Eclipse! It all starts after 4am ET 'til sunrise. We'll answer your questions:

Sky-watchers and astronomers all over the world will have a good opportunity to watch the moon glow with an eerie red pallor during a total lunar eclipse next week.

The blood moon will rise during the full moon of Oct. 8 just before sunrise in North America, but red might not be the only color people see during the total eclipse. Weather permitting, it's possible that some sharp-eyed observers might be able to see some blue in the moon's glow. The event will be the second of four consecutive total lunar eclipses in 2014 and 2015, according to NASA.

Because it happens right after the perigee, the closest point to Earth in the moon's orbit, this blood moon will be nearly the size of a super moon, appearing 5.3% larger than the April 15 previous blood moon.

The Blood Moon Prophecy states that an ongoing series of four consecutive total lunar eclipses, with six full moons in between, and no intervening partial lunar eclipses, which began with the April 2014 lunar eclipse is a sign of the end times. Are you ready for that?
