Blood Moon Rising - Tonight

Beginning at 7:11 tonight Monrovians (and lots of others) will be able to see a rare astronomical sight, a super blood moon eclipse. This involves a super moon (when the moon is closest to earth it appears larger) and a total eclipse in which the moon will appear a rusty red (because of sunlight filtering through our atmosphere and reflecting off the moon). It is also the final in a "tetrad," series of four eclipses occurring at six-month intervals. I believe this will begin just as the moon is rising tonight.
