A rare event in our skies, a lunar eclipse, and yes, experts tell us you'll be able to see it.
You need to be up early Wednesday morning. The eclipse begins at 4:30 am and becomes a complete lunar eclipse around 5:30 am
The lunar eclipse is a little more convenient than the one last April, which occurred in the middle of the night.
A lunar eclipse occurs because the moon has no light of its own, and only affects sunlight. So when the moon passes through the earth's shadow, when it's on the opposite side of the earth from the sun, it disappears into a dark red glow.
If not for the earth's atmosphere, the moon would be completely dark.
