Total lunar eclipse: How to prepare for next month’s eclipse

The next full moon on the calendar after the Hunter’s Moon on October 9th of this month comes on November 8th. There is also a bonus on this day: a total lunar eclipse.

For viewers in America, this shady drama takes place in the early hours of Tuesday, November 8th. Along the Atlantic coast, the moon enters the dark umbra of the earth about an hour before dawn. Along the Pacific coast, first contact with the umbra occurs just over an hour after midnight, when the moon is just passing its highest point in the sky.
