Next week the Earth will pass between the Sun and the Moon, and the Moon will pass through Earth's shadow, forming a Total Lunar Eclipse visible from all of North America (weather permitting)! During the darker umbral phase, the Moon will turn a beautiful, dark orange-red, which shouldn't be missed! Below are key event times for the primary North American time zones:
