The U.S. will witness a total lunar eclipse tonight/this morning for about two hours beginning at 1:43 a.m.  During this time the moon will be filtered through our atmosphere and take on an orange glow.The glow will, in fact, make the moon look somewhat like a glowing basketball.  Expect to see tons of "hilarious" pictures of nerds pretending to "dribble" the moon on the internet tomorrow.   Oh, and buy the way, if you want to see what it will look like without staying up, then just look at the attached picture.  There.  Whoop-dee-do.
