Tonight would have been an amazing night for moon gazing, if it weren’t for the sub-freezing temperatures and awful weather.

This evening is the “Super Blood Wolf Moon” eclipse — the last total lunar eclipse until 2021.

If by some miracle, it is visible, it will be an excellent lunar eclipse, as it is high up in the sky, conveniently timed (not in the wee morning hours), and visible throughout the Americas, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac.

The partial eclipse begins tonight at 10:34 p.m. and ends after midnight on Monday at 1:50 a.m.

Just the “full” eclipse begins Sunday, January 20 at 11:41 p.m. Eastern and the maximum is just after midnight at 12:12 a.m. The full eclipse ends on Monday, January 21 at 12:43 a.m.

This is not only the last total lunar eclipse visible from North America this year (and until 2021), but also the ONLY total eclipse—lunar or solar—visible from North America in 2019.

So Thank You, Mother Nature for being a party pooper.
