Your blood moon lunar eclipse questions, answered

Get your Bonnie Tyler cassettes ready because this weekend is the total lunar eclipse.
Is there anything different about this lunar eclipse?
How often does a lunar eclipse happen?
Lunar eclipses only occur when there is a full moon, but they don't happen every full moon.
It takes a specific alignment of the three celestial bodies to result in a lunar eclipse, as the moon's slightly tilted orbit often prevents the perfect pass.
According to NASA, eclipse seasons generally last about 35 days and occur around every six months.
Lunar eclipses only happen when a full moon pops up during an eclipse season and everything is in the right place.
The last total lunar eclipse was almost one year ago, on May 26, 2021.
The peak color changing of the lunar eclipse is estimated to begin at 9:11 p.m. PT ā€” that's 12:11 a.m.
What's the best way to view the lunar eclipse?
Unlike a solar eclipse, lunar eclipses are completely safe to view without any protective eyewear.
On the lunar eclipse page, NASA also lists other regional live streams, including those broadcasting from around the world, like in Rome, Italy, and Iturrietta, Spain.
