Missed the Blood Moon Eclipse? Here's When the Next One Is Happening

Skywatchers around the world were treated to a rare Super Blue Blood Moon today (Jan. 31). While this was the first time in over 150 years that this particular type of eclipse has happened in the U.S., Americans can look forward to another "blood moon" eclipse coming on Jan. 21, 2019. This next immediate total lunar eclipse — when the moon appears to turn red as it passes through Earth's dark inner shadow, or the umbra — will occur later this year on July 27. But that eclipse won't be visible from North America. However, much of the rest of the world — South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia — will have a great view of that eclipse. The Jan. 21, 2019 eclipse, however, will be visible from all of North and South America, weather permitting. Observers in some parts of Europe, Africa and Asia will also be able to see at least some portion of this eclipse.
