Total Lunar Eclipse (Blood Moon) tomorrow (Oct. 8)

Tomorrow MORNING is a total lunar eclipse. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes completely through the Earth’s dark shadow, or umbra. During this type of eclipse, the Moon will gradually get darker and then take on a rusty or blood red color. The eclipse will be visible throughout most of North America, South America, eastern Asia, and Australia.

The full eclipse will start at 6:25 a.m. ET, NASA says, and last until 7:24 a.m. ET.

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 previous blood moon on April 15.
