Avid skygazers will want to mark their calendars for the upcoming total lunar eclipse that will occur in the early morning hours of Tuesday, April 15, according to astronomers.
Amateur astronomers will have to stay up late or get up very early to see this first of four “blood moons” anticipated to occur over the next year and a half. The Earth will begin to block direct sunlight to the moon at 3:07 a.m. EST. The event will last around 77 minutes with a midpoint occurring at 3:36 a.m EST.
