Lunar Eclipse

By  | 

Stargazers will get a chance to see something unusual in the night sky Wednesday night.
Just go into the backyard, look up and watch the moon.

Starting about 8:15 p.m., the full moon will appear to change as it passes through the Earth's shadow during a full lunar eclipse.

Astronomers says if the skies are clear, people can expect to see the moon turn to a deep reddish, orangish, ghoulish color to coincide with Halloween.

Although the actual eclipse takes several hours, casual observers can watch it change without the aid of optics, telescopes or binoculars.
