Last total lunar eclipse for three years arrives Tuesday
November 8, 2022
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - Better catch the moon's disappearing act Tuesday - there won't be another like it for three years.
The total lunar eclipse will be visible throughout North America in the predawn hours - the farther west, the better - and across Asia, Australia and the rest of the Pacific after sunset. As an extra treat, Uranus will be visible just a finger's width above the moon, resembling a bright star.
Totality will last nearly 1 1/2 hours - from 5:16 a.m. to 6:41 a.m. EST - as Earth passes directly between the moon and sun.
