MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Anyone looking to the sky early Wednesday morning will get to see a lunar eclipse but set those alarms early.
The celestial event’s best viewing time will be between 4 a.m. and 7 a.m. Wednesday, October 8.
Wednesday morning’s total lunar eclipse, which will be the last total lunar eclipse this year, will begin at 4:45 a.m. ET and end at 9:05 a.m. ET. However, the most brilliant part of the eclipse, when the Earth completely shadows the moon from the light of the sun, will start at 6:25 a.m. ET and end at 7:24 a.m., lasting 59 minutes. It is during this window that the moon will take on its infamous blood-red hue.
This eclipse is known as a Hunter’s Moon in the Northern Hemisphere and is also known as a Blood Moon.
Here is the schedule for the eclipse:
The penumbral eclipse will start at 4:17 a.m.
The partial eclipse is at 5:18 a.m.
The full eclipse is at 6:27 a.m.
The maximum eclipse is at 6:55 a.m.

While the eclipse is visible around South Florida, the moon will sometimes be below the horizon and make parts of the event difficult to see.
