"Blood Moon" - the moon appears to be reddish in color during a total lunar eclipse as the sun, Earth and moon all line up. Since this is the day before Martin Luther King Day, many children will not have school the next day and can stay up to enjoy the celestial spectacle with their families. Your eyes are just fine to see the show.

"If you only start looking during totality, and the eclipse is a dark one, you may not immediately be able to see the moon, especially if you are viewing from a town or city", a spokesperson said.

It's hard to predict the exact hue of lunar eclipses, but whatever shade results can offer insight about the chemistry of the Earth's atmosphere. If you are reading this from outside the Chattanooga community, go to timeanddate.com and type in your location. The Earth thus cuts off the moon's light supply.

Things are going to get a little weird in the night sky the evening of Sunday, Jan. 20 (or the early morning of Monday, Jan. 21 in Europe), but don't worry.

On top of changing colors, the moon will be super. For a shadow, it will be quite bright: Before a potential audience of almost three billion people, the moon will gradually transform into a glowing copper-colored orb, tinted by sunlight bouncing off and passing through the air in our planet's dense atmosphere.

Model of the expected close approach of 99942 Apophis (previously better known by its provisional designation 2004 MN4) to the Earth and Moon on April 13, 2029. Most, however, are less-than-ideal affairs in which just a fraction of the moon encounters the Earth's deepest shadow (or "umbra") or instead traverses in whole or in part the "penumbra"-a softer shadow that surrounds the umbra like a nebulous halo". "Front row center" belongs to those who live near and along the U.S. East Coast, where the totally eclipsed moon will climb to extraordinary heights.

Andy Clark took this image of a lunar eclipse over Ashford in 2015. The last supermoon/lunar eclipse occurred in 1982. The only light wavelength left is red - dimly illuminating the moon with less than one-thousandth of the full moon's normal brightness. A Wolf Moon is the name given to the first full moon in January. This is why some folks call a total lunar eclipse a "blood moon".

The moon orbits around the Earth every 27.3 days in a path that is slightly elliptical, meaning it can be closer or farther from Earth throughout the month.
