Description

What do Chile’s recent volcanic eruptions and tomorrow morning’s total lunar eclipse have in common? Well …

Just before sunrise, Earth’s shadow will totally hide the normally-bright moon for about 100 minutes. Actually the moon will not be totally hidden, but cloaked in an eerie brown/orange and possibly a blood-red veil.
