MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Due to a high interest in the highly anticipated 'blood moon', astronomy experts will conduct a live web chat.
According to NASA.gov, Astronomer Mitzi Adams and Astrophysicist Alphonse Sterling will answer questions in a live web chat, beginning on April 15 at 1 a.m. and continuing through the end of the eclipse .
Visit www.NASA.gov for a chance to ask questions about the eclipse.
A total lunar eclipse will be visible all across the United States.
This happens when the moon passes through the earth's shadow. The moon will be a burnt reddish-orange color and is called the 'blood moon' because of the color that is created by the eclipse.
It starts around 2 a.m. - the peak is at 3:46 a.m., and it will end at 5:33 a.m.
This is part of a tetrad, which means we will see four total lunar eclipses in a row.
The next one occurs later this year on October 8th.
The other two will be on April 4th and September 28th of 2015.
