Below are is start time for the beginning of the eclipse as posted on Time and Date website

” During a lunar eclipse, a full moon’s bright facade will change. As the moon enters Earth’s shadow, all of the moon (or a section of it in the case of a partial eclipse) will turn a rusty color. Sunlight scatters to produce the red colors of sunset and sunrise when it enters Earth’s atmosphere at a particular angle.” Space.com
