Total Lunar Eclipse

The Moon will pass through the Earth's shadow between 22:35 and 01:51 EST, creating a total lunar eclipse. The eclipse will be visible any location where the Moon is above the horizon at the time.

It will be visible in the southern sky. The Moon will lie approx. 67° above the horizon at the midpoint of the eclipse.

Eclipses of the Moon are easy to watch with the unaided eye. A modest pair of binoculars will give a superb view of the Moon's surface, but are not required. Unlike solar eclipses, lunar eclipses are entirely safe to look at without the need to look through any kind of filter.
