How to see the last 'blood moon' eclipse of the decade 01/18/2019

How to see the last 'blood moon' eclipse of the decade

Total eclipse of the moon will take place across North America, Sunday, January 20, 2019; this event is also called "a blood moon" because of the changing colors.
National Geographic says....
The entire eclipse will last nearly 3.5 hours, starting with the partial eclipse phase, when Earth’s shadow takes its first bite out of the moon, at 10:34 p.m. ET (03:34 UT). The last hint of this shadow will leave the lunar disk at 1:51 ET (06:51 UT). Totality will last a full 63 minutes, with the maximum eclipse—when the moon is at its deepest, most dramatic coloration—occurring at 12:12 p.m. ET (05:12 UT).

How to see the last 'blood moon' eclipse of the decade Get outside and look up at the full moon this weekend to catch the last total lunar eclipse until 2021.
