2014's first total lunar eclipse to create 'blood moon'
Total lunar eclipse will create "blood moon" for much of the central and western United States.
2014's first total lunar eclipse, which will occur in the overnight hours, will be visible across most of North America, South America, Hawaii and parts of Alaska, Fox News reported.
During a total lunar eclipse, the moon is entirely immersed in Earth shadow, and can take on a dusky "blood red" color due to the scattering of sunlight through the edges of Earth's atmosphere.
This lunar eclipse is the first of four consecutive total eclipses of the moon between April 2014 and September 2015, what scientists call a lunar eclipse "tetrad" series, and the next will occur on October 8.
