On November 8th, the moon will present an incredible spectacle you won’t see again until 2025: a total lunar eclipse that will turn Earth’s closest neighbor a frightening red. If you plan to watch it online, you have several free options available.
The Beaver Moon’s blood moon eclipse, as it’s called (occurs during the full beaver moon in November) will begin at 3:02 AM EDT (0802 GMT) and reach its fullest at 5:16 AM EST (1016 GMT) GMT) before it ends at 8:56 a.m. EDT (1356 GMT). A “blood moon” phase will be visible from North and Central America, as well as from Hawaii, Alaska, 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 the weather misses your view of the full moon? Here is our summary of the total webcast of the November 8 lunar eclipse that we’ve detected so far.

Describing the event, the observatory wrote: “On November 8, one hundred percent of the moon’s circular disk slowly moves toward the dark shadow, and the bright moon becomes faint. However, the moon does not become completely dark.” Instead, it typically glows copper or red as a result of sunlight filtering and bending through Earth’s atmosphere (much like sunsets).”
The Griffith Observatory will not be open for in-person viewing of the lunar eclipse, but it will present a time-lapse video of the event on its YouTube page at approximately 11 a.m. EST (8 a.m. PT, 1600 GMT).
How does a lunar eclipse happen and when will the next one happen?
A total lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes behind the earth in relation to the sun. This casts the Moon into the Earth’s shadow, blocking the sunlight that normally illuminates the Moon as seen from the Earth’s surface.
Since the Moon’s orbit around the Earth is tilted, it does not pass through the darkest part of the Earth’s shadow, called the umbra, each month. When it passes through only part of the Earth’s shadow, it creates a partial lunar eclipse. During a total lunar eclipse, the entire moon is in Earth’s shadow, making it a blood-red color with light refracting through Earth’s atmosphere.
According to NASA, a total lunar eclipse occurs every 1.5 years or so, but multiple eclipses can occur within a year. The blood moon on November 8th is the second total lunar eclipse in 2022 and the blood moon eclipse will follow Super Venus in May.
The next total lunar eclipse after November 8 will be on March 13, 2025. There will be a second total lunar eclipse that year as well, on September 7, 2025, according to NASA’s eclipse website. In 2023 and 2024, the moon will experience either a partial lunar eclipse, when only part of the moon passes through darkness, or a very light eclipse, when the moon dips through the outer layer of the Earth’s shadow, which is called the penumbra. .
