The first thing you'll want to know is what to expect during a total lunar eclipse.

For skywatchers across half the globe, the full Moon will appear to darken on one side (the penumbral phase), then begin to get swallowed as the Earth's disk-like shadow appears to consume the Moon (the partial phase). When the entire Moon is eclipsed, it won't disappear, but rather will appear to take on a faint red color, with one limb always appearing whiter than the rest of it. Over the course of an hour, the whiter portion will appear to migrate from one side to the other, while the full eclipsed Moon itself shines with just 0.0001% the brightness of an eclipsed full Moon (the total phase). As totality ends, a thin white crescent will reappear, as Earth's shadow moves off of the Moon (a second partial phase). Finally, the darkened limb of the Moon, where Earth's shadow just departed, will return to its normal, full brightness (a second penumbral phase).
