BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - An unusually beautiful moon will grace the sky Monday night.
NASA says there will be a total lunar eclipse that will turn the moon a reddish orange, called a blood moon.
This is just the first in a series of four consecutive lunar eclipses.
Sunday night the planet Mars was visible next to the moon. It was Mars' closest approach to Earth in six years.
Penumbral Eclipse begins at 9:55 p.m.
Partial Eclipse begins at 10:59 p.m.
Full Eclipse begins at 12:08 a.m.
Maximum Eclipse at 12:46 a.m.
Full Eclipse ends at 1:23 a.m.
Partial Eclipse ends at 2:32 a.m.
Penumbral Eclipse ends at 3:36 a.m.
The Moon is above the horizon during this eclipse, so with good weather conditions in Bakersfield, the entire eclipse is visible.
