Total Lunar Eclipse tonight (Thursday)

There will be a total lunar eclipse in North America and Western Europe on Jan. 20. The moon will turn a deep red color for little over an hour around 8 p.m. on the west coast and 11 p.m. on the east coast. It will even be visible from western Europe on the morning of January 21. So get up early, if you live in Germany, for a spectacular sight!
