A lunar eclipse that will be visible across America happens just after midnight on Tuesday.
Columbus area residents should be able to see the eclipse -- when the moon falls in the Earth's shadow -- around 2:40 a.m. EST. Maximum eclipse will be at 3:17 a.m. The eclipse will be over at 3:53 a.m.
Want to see it? Just go outside and look to the skies. Depending on pollution, you should be able to see the moon turn a deep orange or even dark red.
Tuesday's lunar eclipse happens on the same day as the winter solstice: the shortest day of the year. Winter begins in Columbus at 6:38 p.m. Tuesday.
