NATIONAL -- Get ready for an unusually beautiful moon early Tuesday morning. NASA says there will be a total lunar eclipse turning the moon a burnt-reddish orange. It's called a blood moon. During a full eclipse, the sunlight which hits the moon passes through Earth's atmosphere at sunrise and sunset, so it casts that red glow on the moon.
