Are you watching the Lunar Eclipse right now?

#MyPhysicist Betrothed told me that the lunar eclipse would begin to look red to us at around midnight PT.

At around 1030 PM, it was a full moon.
At about 1145, it was passing through the Earth's penumbra, so it looked almost halfsies. From my view, the clouds around the partially-eclipsed moon gave it a hazy, orange halo effect, but that's mostly an atmospheric effect.

Soon, the moon will look BLOOOOOD REDDDDD *dun dun dun* thanks to the way the light will be bent by Earth's atmosphere.

UPDATE:  If you missed it and watch to see the transitions of the blood red lunar eclipse, NASA has included a replay video of all 3 hours of coverage, included below! How nice! Enjoy! Courtesy of NASA + Griffith Observatory.
