No matter that a fully eclipsed moon actually turns coppery red like a penny, more like orange, and not remotely red like blood. Anyone with blood the color of an eclipsed moon should go to the emergency room. None of that matters. What's important is that you're going to increasingly hear about this event during the coming days, and it may sound like something scary or dangerous. Mega-Harvest-Blood Moon. If this doesn't get the coyotes howling, nothing will.

It's not dangerous—although we really can expect the year's highest and lowest tides that day and the next. But you do want to watch it. We'll tell you all about how close is the Moon, the exact timing, what to look for and all sort of juicy hints and tidbits right here, next week.
