On Aug. 28, the moon again goes into darkness across most of Canada, lit only by a red glow from the sunlight bent by the earth's atmosphere. The early stages of the eclipse will start at 4:51 a.m. EDT, but the true darkness will begin at 5:52 a.m. EDT.
"They are not as rare as total solar (or sun) eclipses," Florian said. "In the span of about 10 years or so, you will probably see about five total lunar eclipses, approximately, because it can vary a bit."
The last time the earth completely blocked the sun's rays from reaching the moon over our part of the world happened in Oct. 27, 2004. A partial lunar eclipse occurred on March 2006.
The next total lunar eclipse will take place on Feb. 20, 2008. The one after that will occur in December 2010.
Unlike a solar eclipse, a lunar eclipse requires no special equipment and presents no danger to the eyes.
