As you can see from the Visibility Map, the eclipse will not be visible from the US. My calculations have it occurring at 4 pm CST, during daylight. Which will render the lunar eclipse invisible. Additionally, we, in the US, are on the wrong side of the Earth - the Moon will be on the other side.) Sorry. However, there are many news outlets that will cover the eclipse from the east. Start looking for coverage around 1 pm. Your mileage may vary.
The "Blood" color is from the umbral glow of the Earth: The eclipsed Moon reflects the ambient light from the Earth. This can be seen during virtually all lunar eclipses if there is a clear night.
Enjoy! This should be a "stellar" event, with Mars in close proximity to the Moon.
