The last full lunar eclipse until 2014 will happen early Saturday morning. If you don’t mind getting up early, this will be one you won’t want to miss.
The full eclipse will be visible in the western U.S. and will start at around 4:45 a.m. The full eclipse will begin at 6:05 a.m. and will be visible until the sunrise obscured the view.
One of the most interested things about this eclipse is that it will have a red glow. The reason is because the light emitted from the moon has to pass through the stratosphere which scatters the light and makes it appear red. The redder colors happen when the stratosphere is relatively “clean.”
