(AP) -- The second total lunar eclipse of the year will happen early Wednesday.
If the skies are clear, North Americans will get be able to view it, especially in the West. The total eclipse will last an hour - until sunrise on the East Coast.
The eclipse will begin just after 1 a.m. PST and will reach its maximum just before 4 a.m.
It also will be visible across Australia and much of Asia. The moon will appear orange or red, the result of sunlight scattering off Earth's atmosphere. That's why it's called a blood moon.
NASA will also offer a livestream of the eclipse below.
