Second Lunar Eclipse Of 2014 To Bring 'Blood Moon' On October 8
The Huffington Post | By Ryan Grenoble

If you've been feeling a strong urge to howl lately, there's a reason why: A full "blood moon" is coming Oct. 8. Just check out the NASA video above.

All werewolf jokes aside, the total lunar eclipse will be the second -- and final -- "blood moon" of the year. It will be visible in the United States and Canada early Wednesday morning, with better viewing for those in the western part of the continent, as indicated in the map below.

The full eclipse will start at 6:25 a.m. EDT and last until 7:24 a.m, according to NASA.

Full lunar eclipses are often called "blood moons" because of the reddish tint they adopt as sunsets and sunrises seen from Earth reflect onto the surface of the moon.

Because this eclipse will happen two days after a lunar perigee, which is the point when the moon is nearest to Earth, NASA says the moon will appear 5.3 percent larger than the previous "blood moon," which occurred on April 15.

This eclipse marks the second in a series of four lunar eclipses in a row, known as a "tetrad." We'll experience just eight tetrads this century, according to the Washington Post, and we won't experience the next tetrad until around 2032 or 2033.

It should be at full eclipse here around 4:15 am... the way things have been going, I should be very awake to see it. However, it's supposed to be overcast and rainy so who knows? I'll give it a shot anyway Smile

Its rising here now, but I can't quite get a glimpse of it from where I am. A little walk may be in order.

Thanks guys.

It was dark clouds when I started out, her rising was normal hidden behind them. I stayed out over two hours and finally the eclipse began just as I was finishing up around nine thirty or so..
