How to See Wednesday’s Rarest of Rare Moon Event



Share with friends

Wednesday will bring 2021’s only total lunar eclipse.

And, it should be visible in the western half of the United States.

But Wednesday’s event has added significance. The eclipse will coincide with the year’s biggest “supermoon” and it will be a blood moon — meaning it temporarily appears red.

Griffith Observatory Will Live Stream the Eclipse

The Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles plans to stream live views of the Super Flower Blood Moon on Wednesday beginning at 1:45 a.m. PDT. The broadcast will end at 6 a.m. PDT after the last partial phase of the eclipse has ended.

According to, a blood moon hasn’t happened since January 2019, and it won’t occur again until May of next year.
