The last total lunar eclipse until 2025 will turn the moon blood red on Tuesday, November 8, but exactly when you should look depends on where you are.
The eclipse, called the Beaver Blood Moon Eclipse, will be visible across North America, the Pacific, Australia and Asia when it occurs during the full Beaver Moon in November. During an eclipse, the full moon will pass through the Earth’s shadow behind our planet in relation to the sun, giving it a blood-colored spectacle in the process. You can watch the total lunar eclipse for free on Space.com, courtesy of several websites from observatories across the United States.
Tuesday’s “blood moon” eclipse will begin 3:02 am EST (0803 GMT) when the moon begins to enter the last region of the Earth’s shadow. You will have to adjust the time zone (starts at 12:02 am PST observers on the US West Coast, for example). While this marks the official start of the lunar eclipse, it is difficult to see as the Earth’s penumbral shadow is very faint.

It will be more visible part of the eclipse phase, which will start from the beginning 4:09 am EST (0909 GMT) and just over an hour. This is when the Moon enters the Earth’s shadow, or the darker part of the Earth’s shadow. If you cannot see the penumbral eclipse, you will be able to see it with the aid of this eye.
“To the naked eye, like the moon in shadow, it looks like a bite has been taken out of the lunar orbit,” NASA wrote in its guide.

The real show starts all over when the full moon enters the Earth’s shadow. That will happen at that Nov 5:17 am EST (1017 GMT) and will last about 85 minutes, ending in 6:42 am EST (1142 GMT)according to NASA
“The moon will turn copper red. Try binoculars or a telescope for a better view,” wrote NASA. “If you want to take a photo, use the camera on a tripod with the hazards rescued for at least a few seconds.”
If you want to photograph the moon, consider our guides on how to photograph a lunar eclipse and how to photograph the moon with a camera. You can prepare for your next moon viewing with our guides to the best astrophotography cameras and astrophotography lenses.
When the total lunar eclipse ends, the partial phase will return in a reversal of what we saw at the beginning of the eclipse. Part of the time limit will be in 7:49 am EST (4:49 am PST, 1249 GMT), but at this time the moon will be observed in the Eastern time zone. For those places where the moon is still visible, the last penumbral period will last until 8:50 am EST (5:50 am PST, 1350 GMT).
And those are the times for the November 8th total lunar eclipse! If you are looking for this lunar event, the next total lunar eclipse will occur on March 14, 2025, although there will be lunar eclipses in 2023 and 2024. There is a full moon every month, of course, so you can practice your lunar photography. and observed throughout the year before the eclipse of the next moon.
