Tuesday, April 15th is the day for the total lunar eclipse. According to information from NASA’s web site, the entire event is visible from both North and South America. 

The total lunar eclipse begin time is at 2:06am EST.

The eclipse’s peak, when the moon will enter the Earth's full shadow or umbra, will occur at 3:45 a.m., NASA said.

Depending on local weather conditions, scientists said the public will get a spectacular view looking into the sky as the moon's appearance will change from bright orange to blood red to dark brown and perhaps gray. The eclipse is a phenomenon that occurs when the Earth, moon and sun are in perfect alignment, blanketing the moon in the Earth's shadow.  The United States will not be able to witness a full lunar eclipse in its entirety again until 2019, scientists said.
