Daily Transporter: Blood Moon

lunar eclipse

A total eclipse of the moon—the fourth lunar eclipse in a row with no intervening partial eclipses—begins at 1:20 a.m. EDT tonight. The event is being referred to as a blood moon, which sounds dramatic but is a phrase used to describe any total eclipse. (EarthSky.org explains why the moon turns coppery red during these celestial events.)
