Morning Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse On Wednesday

Wednesday morning’s total lunar eclipse, which will be the last total lunar eclipse this year, will begin at 4:45 a.m. ET and end at 9:05 a.m. ET. However, the most brilliant part of the eclipse, when the Earth completely shadows the moon from the light of the sun, will start at 6:25 a.m. ET and end at 7:24 a.m., lasting 59 minutes. It is during this window that the moon will take on its infamous blood-red hue.

It will be best seen from the Pacific Ocean, but the northwestern third of North America will also see all its stages. The total eclipse phase will last 59 minutes, according to NASA.
