Tomorrow morning North Americans may be in a position to see a “Blood Moon” full lunar eclipse for the second time this year. Viewers in Australia, the Pacific islands and eastern Asia will, on a cloudless night, be able to view this event on the evening of October 8th.

“If you’re in the central or western parts of the U.S. and Canada, you’ll see the total eclipse high in a dark sky well before sunrise. Easterners will find dawn brightening and the Moon sinking low in the west while the eclipse is in progress — offering particularly interesting photo opportunities,” according to Sky & Telescope magazine.

The photo above is a great example, by Christian Ronnel taken in April, 2014 using a 600mm lens.
