When is it?

Beginning in the late evening of Dec. 20 or the early morning of Dec. 21, depending on your location, the moon will begin passing through the Earth’s shadow resulting in a total lunar eclipse.

Where Can I See it?

North America is the place to be for this eclipse as the entire display will be visible from all locations.  Partial views should be available from Western Europe to Asia and Oceania as the moon circles the earth.  The above map should let you know what to expect or you can visit the NASA website for more info.

Break Out Those Cameras

Another eclipse this good won’t be visible from North America for almost four years.  I’m planning on publishing some of the best time-lapse videos, so let me know if you have one you’d like to display on this site.  Good luck!
