Hmmm. I understand that some people want to call this eclipse the "Blood Moon”. If it’s red, I’ll be thinking of rose petals.
Lunar Eclipses are visible from the entire Earth hemisphere facing the Moon. That’s billions & billions of people : - )
Those who don't know a Lunar Eclipse is in progress will likely mistake Earth's shadow for the Moon going through phases.
At 3.5 hrs, Total Lunar Eclipses are long & boring. Wait for the Moon to enter the deepest part of Earth's shadow: 1:58am ET.
Total Eclipses occur every couple of years or so. If anyone calls them "rare", ask if they feel that way about the Olympics.
Dust in Earth's atmosphere can tint sunlight, casting eclipsed Moons in a deep red light. But often the Moon just gets dark.
After midnight Monday ET, the Full Moon ambles deep into Earth's projected shadow in space: Behold a Total Lunar Eclipse.
Attention StarGazers: Watch for the "Income Tax" Lunar Eclipse, beginning Mon night 12:53am ET (Tue Morning). Lasting 3.5 hrs
FYI: Tonight's Moon, a waxing gibbous, is the same phase as that of Earth in this Apollo 8 @NASA photo

If your sentence contains the word "Hope" then you've confessed no control over the outcome you're hoping for.
ThereY’go: RT @wlk92 How about this: a redneck turtle burger...
I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a fat turtle.
