Total lunar eclipse on Tuesday

This morning in the Freep...

Oh my freaky darlings-- we need to get up early on Tuesday because the moon's surface will darken as the earth's shadow creeps across it to create a partial eclipse just before dawn, (Zoli and I will set our alarms for 5:45) we won't get to see the very end because the sun will be up by then. The night she does decay.
Although it will be a total eclipse the ring of light around the earth's edge is enough to illuminate the moon's surface.
If there is enough dust in the earth's atmosphere the surface will appear blood red--how cool is that?

I woke up this morning and lay there till Venus flickered out.
