The lunar eclipse, a so-called ‘blood moon’ because it doesn’t completely go dark, won’t be visible here in northern California. It will be mostly in the southern and eastern hemisphere. It’s considered historic because the entire event will take as much as 4 hours long, the actual eclipse an hour and 43 minutes. There will be a camera on the eclipse you can see on the web from the websites of Bareket Observatory in Israel and the Virtual Telescope Project in Rome, starting at 11:30 this morning, Pacific Time
