Nov 18-19: Partial Lunar Eclipse of a Lifetime!

This eclipse of the Micro Full Beaver Moon is such a deep partial eclipse that it will look like an "almost" total lunar eclipse for those in North and South America, Australia, and parts of Asia. It is the longest partial eclipse of the Moon since the 15th century, and there won't be one this long until February 8, 2669!

So, make sure you don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime eclipse, and if you can't see it from where you are, watch it LIVE with us!

The video above is from the partial phase of the total lunar eclipse of January 31, 2018.

When does the live stream start?

Total Eclipse of the Sun in the Antarctic

Eclipses never come alone. Two weeks after the November 18-19 "almost" total lunar eclipse, on December 4, the Super New Moon will block out the Sun during a total solar eclipse. Unfortunately, most people will not be able to enjoy the total phase of this eclipse, which will be visible only over parts of Antarctica. Parts of southern Africa, including locations in South Africa and Namibia, will see a partial solar eclipse.

Look Up For the Leonids

Named after the constellation Leo, this November meteor shower will peak in the night between November 17 and 18.

Best day and time to catch the fireballs
