NH1 Chief Meteorologist Clayton Stiver explains the blood moon

If you missed the first blood moon in April, it may be possible to see another one early Wednesday...well, maybe.
Another total lunar eclipse will light up the sky Wednesday Morning before sunrise. Clear skies would be ideal, but unfortunately for the Granite State, the weather looks to be cloudy with a good chance for rain and t-storms.
The eclipse is from 6:25am to 7:24am with the greatest eclipse around 6:55am. Unfortunately this is also the time frame that we will likely see showers and storms.
Wonder why they call it a blood moon? Well, the earth will position itself between the sun and moon, creating a full lunar eclipse with a majestic red hue. The red hue is created by multiple sunrises and sunsets reflecting off Earth's surface onto the Moon.
If we miss this blood moon, not to worry, we'll have another chance to see one on April 4, 2015.
