California and several other states in the western United States are getting front row seats early Wednesday morning to the second and final total eclipse in the “Blood Moon” tetrad series of 2014.
After dazzling sky watchers Monday night, get ready for round two. Set your calendar for October 8th, when the second total lunar eclipse in this “Blood Moon” tetrad occurs, but this one is for super early risers, or serious night owls. The full eclipse will occur at 3:55 a.m. over the San Francisco – San Jose – Oakland area.
Moon watchers in the western U.S., Hawaii and elsewhere across the globe were treated Saturday to a rare celestial phenomenon: a total lunar eclipse.
The Chabot Space and Science Center in Oakland is hosting a viewing of the total lunar eclipse Monday night – and Bay Area residents are hoping clouds don’t obscure the rare event.
