Summary Safe to watch with the naked eye, the lunar eclipse should cast a bright orange or red tint across the moon. The lunar eclipse on Tuesday will be the first of four eclipses expected within the next year: two lunar and two solar.
Summary This undated illustration made available by NASA shows the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) orbiting the moon. The moon will be rising in the western Pacific, and so only the last half of the eclipse will be visible there.
Summary LADEE will eventually be dropped to as low as a mile or two above the lunar surface to make its final scientific observations before a maneuver sets up the spacecraft's controlled impact on or before April 21, NASA said last week .
Summary Two weeks before LADEE's mission expires and ground controllers set an impact trajectory for the dark side of the moon (planned for April 21), NASA scientists sent LADEE to debunk the crystal smog-like glow. "The moon's gravity field is so lumpy and the terrain is so highly variable with crater ridges and valleys that frequent maneuvers are required or the LADEE spacecraft will impact the moon's surface," LADEE project manager Butler Hine told NASA .
