Last Year, there were two total lunar eclipses (Blood Moons) and there’ll be another two this year. The first one is for early risers as the dark limb of the Earth’s shadow touches the full moon on April 4 at 4:15 a.m. MDT above the western horizon.

You probably won’t notice it until around 4:25 as the right side of the Moon begins to darken. Totality, when the Moon may become blood red to brown depending on the condition of Earth’s atmosphere, will begin 5:54 a.m. and last only 12 minutes.
