Skywatcher’s Delight! Next Week’s Total Lunar Eclipse Will be Visible Across the U.S. Last One Visible Until 2025


Save the date for an extra special Tuesday! On Tuesday, Nov. 8 residents from coast to coast across the United States will be treated to a total lunar eclipse that morning.

A lunar eclipse occurs on a full Moon when the path of the Moon's orbit takes it into Earth's shadow, shielding it from the Sun. The light from all the sunrises and sunsets on Earth are cast on the Moon, giving it a temporary reddish color.

Find out more about the Nov. 8 eclipse here and check out the chart below to see times: https://moon.nasa.gov/news/185/what-you-need-to-know-about-the-lunar-eclipse/. The next total lunar eclipse visible across the U.S. won’t be until 2025!

NASA has been studying the Moon in unprecedented detail for the last 13 years with its Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft (LRO), mapping the entire lunar surface to support science and future exploration by both humans and robots. The mission has been awarded a 3 year extension, taking operations to at least 2025, and will continue to shed new light on our nearest neighbor in space.

Suggested Questions:
1. We’ll get some excitement looking at the Moon tomorrow morning! What makes tomorrow’s Moon so special?
2. You said the Moon will turn red during the lunar eclipse, why is that?
3. We’re coming up on the 50th anniversary of Apollo 17, the last time humans walked on the Moon. And in just a few weeks NASA will make its next attempt to launch its Mega Moon rocket that will carry humans back to the Moon. Can you tell us more about NASA’s Artemis program?
4. NASA has been studying the Moon in incredible detail with the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter for 13 years and it turns out the Moon is much more dynamic than we had thought. What are some of your favorite things we have learned about our Moon?
5. Why do we want to send astronauts to the Moon? What is it about the Moon that we still need to learn?
6. Where can our viewers go to learn more about the Moon, Artemis, and all the great work being done by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter?

Questions for longer interviews:
* How does our Moon help us better understand other planets and moons in our solar system?
* How is the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter helping to usher in a new era of lunar science?
* A lunar eclipse must be a rough ride for a solar-powered lunar orbiter. What does the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter have to do to prepare for an eclipse?
