Second Blood Moon of 2014 Tonight Expected to Be the Largest
Blood Moon: Round two! It sounds like a scary movie, but it's more like free celestial entertainment.
This one promises to be bigger than the last one, however, we may get only a partial glimpse of this late night tonight into early Wednesday Morning here in the Stateline area.
Those people that live in the western half of the United States, they have a front-row seat of a lunar eclipse that will turn the moon a burnt reddish orange for about an hour Wednesday. This is the second blood moon of 2014, the last one occurred on April 15th.
NASA says that the full eclipse will start at 5:25 a.m. and last until 6:24 a.m.
The blood moon will appear 5.3% larger than the last blood moon.
Tonight's blood moon is the second in a sequence of four — called a tetrad. The next one will appear on April 4, 2015, and the last one on September 28, 2015.
