Tonight at 1:58 AM the moon will move into Earth's shadow. This isn't really that rare, but it will be the first full lunar eclipse we've had since December 11, 2011. The greatest portion of the eclipse will occur around 3:46 AM, with everything wrapping up around 6:00 AM or so. Light from the sun will get scattered and projected onto the moon. NASA is describing it as "all the sunsets on Earth, projected onto the moon". This will give it a red appearance, earning it the nickname of the "blood moon".
