If you step outside late tonight into early Tuesday morning, you may notice the moon looks like a luminous rotten orange. It’s a total lunar eclipse that will be visible to everyone in North and Central America, including Alaska andÂ Hawaii.
The total eclipse will last for 72 minutes, a deeper “night within a night,” as he puts it. It will be partially eclipsed for about an hour as it goes into and out of the Earth’s shadow.
The total eclipse will last from 2:41 to 3:53 a.m. ET.
