More about the super blood moon total lunar eclipse

From gainesville.com:

The silent celestial cogs of the Earth, moon and sun align this month to treat all of North America to a total lunar eclipse, the first show with this reach since September 2015.

For stargazers in north central Florida, the event begins at 9:36 p.m. Jan. 20 as the first delicate slice is taken out of the moon by the Earth’s shadow. The full eclipse begins at 11:41 p.m. as more of the moon is swallowed.

But the peak of the show is at 12:12 a.m. on Jan. 21, as the moon is fully enveloped in a coppery hue — a result of the sun’s rays reaching around Earth and through its thin atmosphere.
