Total Eclipse of the Moon


Wednesday, January 31, 2018: Total Eclipse of the Moon

This eclipse is best observed from central or western North America, because the Moon will set soon after it enters the umbra when observed from eastern North America. The Moon will enter the penumbra at 5:50 A.M. ET (2:50 A.M. PT) and the umbra at 6:48 A.M. ET (3:48 A.M. PT). The Moon will leave the umbra at 10:12 A.M. ET (7:12 A.M. PT)
