Our sunrises and sunsets are legendary around here, but how would you like to see all the sunrises and sunsets on Earth at the same time! And it doesn't even require a trip to outer space.
Lucky for us for this first event, we're in prime geographical position here along the West Coast, getting to see the show from start to finish. Tuesday. Now, all of a sudden it's being applied to this current streak of four lunar eclipses, and it's a mystery why.
Instead, the moon is going to essentially turn into an astronomical version of a projection screen as we get the first of four consecutive lunar eclipses over the next two years.

that aren't broken up by a partial lunar eclipse in between.
In 2015, the dates are April 4 and Sept. 28. For the April 4 one, the West Coast will get to see just about the whole show but the moon will set toward the very end. For Sept. 28, 2015, the moon will rise already eclipsed so we'll get the second half of the show.
when it will be the Hunter's Moon or the original definition of a "Blood Moon".)
Four lunar eclipses in a row is that a record?
The site wasn't sure if it's because the moon turns reddish in color which it sort of does during all lunar eclipses; this isn't something unique to this particular eclipse or if it's some new moniker to go with the four in a row. (Or, could it be related to a recent book and a purported Biblical prophecy?)
First, I should point out it's not 4 consecutive months with an eclipse, but four lunar eclipses six lunar cycles apart Nike Lebron 12 Nsw Lifestyle Black
But it appears the name has stuck and I Nike Kyrie 1 All Star Ebay guess Blood Moon will go the way of "Blue Moon" which these days also has a different definition (2nd full moon in a month or fourth in a three month period) than its original intention.
Even though the moon will be in the Earth's shadow, it should appear a bit colorful, some shade of red or orange. That's from light around the edges of the Earth essentially all the sunrises and sunsets at the moment splashing on the lunar surface and faintly lighting up the moon, said Alan MacRobert, senior editor at Sky Telescope magazine. Cloudier weather along the sunrise and sunset zones during the eclipse and the moon will drift closer to black.
These group of four, called a "tetrad," happen roughly once every 10 18 years. The last one was in 2003 04 (in the days before Twitter and fancy BloodMoon hashtags so it largely went unnoticed?) and after this current group that spans this year and next, the 3rd tetrad of the 21st Century will be in 2032 33. There will be eight tetrads this century alone.
