* The whole eclipse starts Sunday night or early Monday, depending on location and will take about three hours.
* It begins with the partial phase around 10:34 pm EST (9.04 am IST) Sunday. That's when Earth's shadow will begin to nip at the moon.
* Totality — when Earth's shadow completely blankets the moon — will last 62 minutes, beginning at 11:41 pm EST (10.11 am IST) Sunday.
* The entire eclipse will be visible in North and South America, as well as Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, Great Britain, Norway, Sweden, Portugal and the French and Spanish coasts.
* Some places will be livestreaming it, including the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.
* During totality, the moon will look red because of sunlight scattering off Earth's atmosphere. That's why an eclipsed moon is sometimes known as a blood moon. (In January, the full moon is also sometimes known as the wolf moon or great spirit moon.)
