On November 8th, the moon will present an amazing sight that you won’t see again until 2025: a total lunar eclipse that will turn Earth’s closest supermoon a blood-red color. If you want to watch it online, you have several free options available.
The Beaver Blood Moon lunar eclipse, as it’s called (it took place during the full Beaver Moon in November) will begin at 3:02 am EST (0802 GMT) and reach totality at 5:16 am EST (1016 GMT) before ending at 8. :56 am EST (1356 GMT). The “blood moon” period will be visible from North and Central America, as well as Hawaii, Alaska and parts of South America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, according to NASA (Opens in a new tab).
This will be the last lunar eclipse of 2022, and in fact the last eclipse of any kind this year. But what if a storm clouds your full moon? Below we have found the November 8th total lunar eclipse web site so far.

Griffith Observatory’s blood moon eclipse webcast
The famous Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, California will offer its own stream at the beginning of the lunar eclipse. 3 am EST (12 am PST, 0800 GMT). It will run up to the customer 9 am EST (6 am PST, 1400 GMT).

“On November 8, 100 percent of the full moon’s circular orbit slowly moves into the dark shadow, and the bright moon darkens. But the moon does not become completely dark,” the observatory wrote in the event description. But it usually glows with air or a red color, which is filtered from the sun and bent by the Earth’s atmosphere (much at sunset).
The Griffith Observatory will not be open to viewers of the lunar eclipse, but will offer a time-lapse of the event on its YouTube page at approximately 11 am EST (8 am PST, 1600 GMT).
As lunar eclipses occur and if it is near
Total lunar eclipses occur when the moon passes behind the Earth in relation to the sun. This sends the moon into the Earth’s shadow, blocking out the sun that typically illuminates the moon as seen from the Earth’s surface.
Since the moon’s orbit around the Earth is like a tilt, it does not pass through the inner part of the Earth’s shadow, which is called the umbra, every month. When it passes through only part of the Earth’s shadow, it causes a partial lunar eclipse. In a total lunar eclipse, the entire moon is in the Earth’s shadow, with the light refracted through the Earth’s atmosphere turning the color red.
According to NASA, a total lunar eclipse occurs every 1.5 years or so, but many can occur in a year. The November 8th Blood Moon is the second total lunar eclipse of 2022 and follows the Super Flower Blood Moon Eclipse in May.
The next total lunar eclipse after November 8 will be on March 13, 2025. The second total lunar eclipse of that year will be on Sept. 7. 2025, according to the NASA eclipse. In 2023 and 2024, the moon will experience either a total or partial lunar eclipse, when only part of the moon passes through the shadow, or an ever-so-slight penumbral eclipse, when the moon dips through the outermost shadow of the Earth. .
