Science Project: October 2014 Blood Moon: Total Lunar Eclipse Coverage

A total lunar eclipse is set to rise above people across a large swath of the world early Wednesday (Oct. 8). Weather permitting, people in North America, Australia, western South America and parts of East Asia will be able to see the total lunar eclipse. Sometimes, when the moon dips into Earth’s shadow during an eclipse, the natural satellite takes on a coppery-red color, leading some people to dub it a “blood moon.” The eclipse should reach totality just before sunrise at about 6:25 a.m. EDT (1025 GMT) on the east coast of the United States.
