There will be a total lunar eclipse visible throughout North America early on Tuesday morning, Nov. 8, in the predawn hours. The initial phase of the eclipse begins at 3:02am.

It’s the last total lunar eclipse for three years. The next will occur on March 14, 2025.

According to NASA:

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.
