Watch the ‘Blood Moon’ Total Lunar Eclipse

The moon will be totally eclipsed for around five minutes at 7:58am

The shortest “Blood Moon” total lunar eclipse this century will be observed by early-bird stargazers on Saturday morning.

At 6:16 a.m. EDT, the moon will first enter the Earth’s shadow and will be totally eclipsed for about five minutes beginning at 7:58 a.m., according to NASA. While the entire United States will be able to see at least a partial eclipse, those west of the Mississippi river are expected to have the best views, uninterrupted by the sunrise.
