Those of us living on the east coast of China will be able to see a lunar eclipse, also known as a "blood moon" later tonight.
According to timeanddate, the event will begin at around 5 p.m. and reach totality at 8 p.m. this evening.
Unfortunately the recent spate of bad weather may obstruct any moon gazing you might have planned. In Shanghai it is forecast to be overcast and cloudy all evening.
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes within the Earth's shadow. As the eclipse begins, the moon will begin to darken before the shadow fully engulfs the moon, turning it a dark red-brown color.

Snow and rain forecast for my location, but DSLR and 1200mm telephoto ready, just in case a hole opens up in the cloud cover.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words
