On Tuesday, April 15, there will be a total lunar eclipse that will turn the moon a coppery red, NASA says.

CBSNews -- A pretty spectacular sight will grace our pre-dawn skies on Tuesday.   A total lunar eclipse will turn the moon a coppery red, hence its name, the blood moon. To take advantage of it, you’ll have to stay up late from Monday night into Tuesday. 2-4 a.m. or so will be the best viewing time.

Clouds ahead of an approaching cold front may be the only fly in the ointment.  Clouds or not, if you don’t get a chance to see this eclipse, you’re in luck! It’s one of four total eclipses that will take place in North America over the next year and a half; the next occurs on October 8 and another two follow next year on April 4 and September 28th.
