Exactly When to See the Election Day ‘Blood Moon’ Total Lunar Eclipse From All US States

Are you ready to get up early or go to bed late to witness the second total lunar eclipse of 2022 and the last until 2025? On the morning of Tuesday, November 8, 2022, a spectacular reddish moon will be visible across North America.

Unlike the recent partial solar eclipse, this will be a completely safe event to view with the naked eye – no need for eclipse glasses, binoculars or a telescope.

A lunar eclipse is a global event occurring at exactly the same time, but it is only observable by those on the night side of Earth. For this total lunar eclipse that includes all of North America.

However, since there are time zones, local times are different. Here is exactly what will be visible, from where and when:

During the event, the Moon will pass through Earth’s fuzzy outer shadow (penumbra) and in its deep, dark inner shadow (shadow), where it will take on a dark reddish copper color for 85 minutes.

Here’s when to see the “Blood Moon” total lunar eclipse from all US states and time zones (although if you want to see the partial eclipse phase – when the Moon starts to turn red, which is a dramatic sight in itself – leave one hour before these times):
