What time is the Blood Moon total lunar eclipse on November 8?
The last total lunar eclipse until 2025 will turn the moon blood red on Tuesday, November 8, but exactly when to look up depends on where you are.
The eclipse, called the Beaver Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse since it takes place in November Full Beaver Moon, will be visible in North America, the Pacific, Australia and Asia. During the solar eclipse, full moon will pass through Earth’s shadow as it moves behind our planet relative to the sun, giving it a spectacular gory color. You can watch the total lunar eclipse on Space.com for free, courtesy of several webcasts from observatories in the United States.
Tuesday “blood moon“eclipse starts at 3:02 a.m. EST (0803 GMT) when the moon begins to enter the outermost part of the Earth’s shadow. You need to adjust the time for your time zone (it starts at 12:02 p.m. PST for observers on the US West Coast, for example). While this marks the official beginning of the lunar eclipseit can be difficult to see because the Earth’s penumbral shadow is very small.

“The Moon begins to dim, but the effect is quite subtle,” NASA wrote (opens in new tab) in an eclipse timeline.
More striking is the partial solar eclipse phase, which begins at 4:09 a.m. EST (0909 GMT) and takes a little over an hour. This is when the moon enters the Earth’s umbra, or the dark part of the Earth’s shadow. If you didn’t notice the penumbral eclipse, you should be able to see it with your naked eye.
“To the naked eye, as the moon moves in the umbra, it looks like a bite is being taken from the lunar disk,” NASA wrote in its guidebook.

The real show begins at totality, when the entire moon enters the Earth’s umbra. This will happen on November 8th at 5:17 a.m. EST (1017 GMT) and lasts about 85 minutes, ending at 6:42 a.m. EST (1142 GMT)according to NASA.
“The moon is turning copper red. Try binoculars or a telescope for a better view,” NASA wrote. “If you want to take a picture, use a camera on a tripod with exposures of at least a few seconds.”

Once the total phase of the lunar eclipse ends, it will return a partial phase in a reverse order of what we saw at the beginning of the solar eclipse. The sharing phase ends at 7:49 a.m. EST (4:49 a.m. PST, 1249 GMT), but by then the moon will have set for observers in the eastern time zone. For those in locations where the moon is still visible, the final penumbral phase lasts until 8:50 a.m. EST (5:50 a.m. PST, 1350 GMT).
And those are the times for the total lunar eclipse of November 8! If you miss this lunar event, the next total lunar eclipse will occur on March 14, 2025, although there will be partial lunar eclipses in 2023 and 2024. Of course, there is a full moon every month, so you can practice and observe your lunar photography all year prior to the next lunar eclipse.
