The full moon will turn orange Wednesday night.
And weather permitting, local skywatchers will get a good look at the last total lunar eclipse until 2010.
The sun's light shining through the Earth's atmosphere will cast an orange shadow on the moon as the Earth passes between it and the sun.
The total eclipse starts about 10 p.m. and lasts until 10:51 p.m., according to NASA. The partial eclipse of the moon entering or leaving the Earth's shadow will start at 8:43 p.m. and end at 12:09 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.
