“If you have heard about the super blue blood moon eclipse then you might want to try and see it!” Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini said.

“The eastern United States won't get to see a total lunar eclipse because the moon will set too quickly but a partial will be visible in the Miami Valley.”

This eclipse will begin at 6:48 a.m. Wednesday, reaching its maximum shortly after 7:41 a.m. Remember, the moon will set around 7:47 a.m., so give yourself a good sight-line to the western horizon, according to Zontini.

“There will be clouds in the early morning sky Wednesday, but not overcast. Temperatures will be cold if you are out early sitting in the low 20s.

“Remember to find a clear shot of the west-northwestern sky Wednesday morning. A high view point will help you see the Super Blue Blood moon during the eclipse. You'll notice the big and bright moon will have a reddish tint which is cast when the moon passes through the earth's shadow,” Zontini said.

If it is too cold or cloudy where you live, NASA is providing a live stream on Wednesday.
