Safe to watch with the naked eye, the lunar eclipse should cast a bright orange or red tint across the moon. The robotic orbiter LADEE was never designed to endure a lengthy eclipse, and scientists don't know if it can withstand the prolonged cold of the hours-long eclipse. Scientists expect LADEE's doomsday to occur on or before April 21, and NASA has started an online contest asking the public to guess the impact time.
