Blood Moon Rising: Best Time to Catch Tonight's Total Lunar Eclipse




Second chances like this don't come around too often.

If you missed the blood moon earlier this year, be sure to set your alarm because another total lunar eclipse will return to the sky early Wednesday morning.

Insomniacs and early risers will have the best chance of catching a glimpse of the celestial sight, which is set to begin a little after 5 a.m. ET, according to AccuWeather.

The Earth will position itself between the sun and the moon, creating a full lunar eclipse with a majestic red hue.

Clear skies are ideal for viewing the blood, which can be seen with the naked eye. The best view is in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, however if you aren't near a Hawaiian beach -- don't fret.

The total lunar eclipse will be visible at moonset for most of North America. The glowing orb will be 5.3 percent larger than the last total lunar eclipse, which occurred on April 15, according to NASA.

The eclipse is the second in a rare series known as the tetrad, in which the moon is completely covered by the Earth's umbral shadow for four eclipses in a row, as opposed to only partial eclipses that fall in the outer penumbra.

If you press snooze on your alarm, you'll have two more chances to catch a blood moon next year. The next total lunar eclipse will be on April 4, 2015, according to NASA.

When the moon rose, it looked promising. The uneclipsed moon is pretty bright by comparison:







I got up at 3am, set up three cameras, but had some annoying high thin clouds. It wasn't as cold as the April eclipse.
