Lunar eclipse to cause blood moon Tuesday

An unusually beautiful moon will grace the night skies this coming week.

NASA says there will be a total lunar eclipse early Tuesday morning that will turn the moon a burnt reddish orange.

It's called a blood moon, and this one is just the first in a series of four consecutive total eclipses.

Within a year and a half, North America will be able to see a blood moon a total of four times.
