(CNN) — Get ready for an unusually beautiful moon to grace the night skies.

NASA says there will be a total lunar eclipse early Tuesday morning that will turn the moon a burnt reddish-orange.

It’s called a blood moon, and this one is just the first in a series of four consecutive total eclipses.

Within a year-and-a-half, North America will be able to see a blood moon a total of four times.
