This Sunday’s total lunar eclipse is going to be spectacular. Starting at 8:11 pm Eastern time, the moon will slowly start to darken, turning rusty red as it passes through the Earth’s shadow—reaching peak shaded-ness at 10:47 pm. This eclipse is extra special, too, because it’ll occur during a supermoon, when the satellite passes closest to the Earth’s surface and appears about 14 percent larger than usual.
East coasters in the US will have the best view, since the night sky will be perfectly dark by the time the moon goes through its various stages of reddening. On the west coast, the moon will still be rising as the eclipse maxes out. But if you have less than a perfect view of the rusty orb—or are somewhere east of Europe, where the eclipse will be visible either super-late or not at all—we’ve still got you covered. Two observatories are live streaming it.
Starting at 8 pm Eastern, the Slooh Community Observatory network will be livestreaming views of the eclipse from several continents, including a broadcast from Stonehenge.
And NASA TV will present its own broadcast, also starting at 8 pm Eastern. It’ll start at Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama, and sprinkle in live feeds from the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, the Adler Planetarium in Chicago, and the Fernbank Observatory in Atlanta. We’ll have all the action here, too.Go Back to Top. Skip To: Start of Article.
