Final lunar eclipse of 2010 set for early Tuesday morning

Posted: Updated:

LUBBOCK, TX (CNN) - If you're into stargazing, there's something you're not going to want to miss Tuesday morning.

The last lunar eclipse of 2010 will start around 12:30 a.m.

It's expected to last for about three and a half hours and go through a range of dramatic colors.

During an eclipse, the moon, the Earth and the sun align so that the sun's rays are shielded from the moon.

The moon is expected to turn a vibrant red color at one point. The last lunar eclipse was in June.
