Total lunar Eclipse Viewing

November 8 @ 5:00 am - 6:00 am

How exciting! A total Lunar Eclipse will be visible throughout North America in the very early morning on Tuesday, November 8th.
This is a fantastic opportunity to experience and learn about one of Earths many wonders with friends and family.
 
*You don’t want to miss this one, as it will be the LAST total lunar eclipse until March 14th, 2025. Getting up early isn’t that fun, but this will be an event worth getting up early for!
 
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth, and Moon align so that the Moon passes into Earth’s shadow. In a total lunar eclipse, the entire Moon falls within the darkest part of Earth’s shadow, called the umbra. When the Moon is within the umbra, it will turn a reddish hue. Lunar eclipses are sometimes called “Blood Moons” because of this phenomenon.
