RENO, NV - In case you missed Tuesday morning's rare lunar eclipse... called the "blood moon"... be aware that it's just the first of four such events in the next two years as part of a sequence called a tetrad.

The moon turns a burnt orange-reddish color as it crosses the earth's shadow.

Unlike solar eclipses, this lunar eclipse is safe to view with the naked eye.

You can see it again October 8th.
