Instead Of Going To Bed Early…

Why not watch the Super Blood Wolf Moon lunar eclipse!

Yes, there will be some excitement in the sky this evening over North and South America, as well as parts of Europe, Africa, and Asia. It’s a full lunar eclipse and it will be fun to see.

Here are the facts according to NASA: the edge of the Moon will begin to enter the Earth’s penumbra (the outer section of the shadow) at 6:36 p.m. PT / 9:39 p.m. ET. Over the course of the next 57 minutes, the Moon will dim as it travels through the penumbra. Then, at 7:33 p.m. PT / 10:33 p.m. ET, the Moon will reach the umbra, at which point it will become significantly darker. By 8:41 p.m. PT / 11:41 p.m. ET, the Moon will be all the way inside the umbra, and that’s when the eclipse truly begins. The best view will occur at 9:12 p.m. PT / 12:12 a.m. ET.

The total lunar eclipse should last almost exactly an hour, with the edge of the Moon expected to begin exiting the umbra at 9:43 p.m. PT / 12:43 a.m. ET. The Moon will then depart the umbra at 10:50 p.m. PT / 1:50 a.m. ET, and the eclipse will end completely at 11:48 p.m PT / 2:48 a.m. ET.

If there are clouds or some other reason you can’t watch outside, you can watch the eclipse live (time zone dependent). The link is on the button below.
