At 6:16 a.m. EDT, the moon will first enter the Earth’s shadow and will be totally eclipsed at 7:58 a.m., according to NASA.
Those on the West Coast of the United States will have a better chance of seeing the eclipse than those east of the Mississippi River, who will only be able to see a partial eclipse because of the sunrise. India, western China and parts of Russia will be able to see portions of the eclipse after sunset, while Greenland, Iceland, Europe, Africa and the Middle East won’t be able to see it at all.
Those that can’t walk outside to see the Blood Moon can check it out online at the Los Angeles-based Griffith Observatory’s website, the skywatching service Slooh, or here at TIME. You can also tweet to NASA astronomer Mitzi Adams (@NASA_Marshall), who will be taking questions using the hashtag #eclipse2015 from about 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. EDT.
It will be the third lunar eclipse in a series of four known as a “tetrad,” following those in April and September last year. The final one of the series will occur on September 28, 2015.
