Get ready for this year's second Total Lunar Eclipse!
On the night of November 8th, 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:
