Tonight a total lunar eclipse masks the moon. It’s the first time in more than 30 years to see a supermoon in combination with a lunar eclipse. If you miss it, the next supermoon eclipse won’t occur until 2033.
NASA’s live stream is available from 5 p.m. PDT to at least 8:30 p.m. PDT broadcast from Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., with a live feed from the Griffith Observatory, Los Angeles, Calif. Mitzi Adams, a NASA solar physicist at Marshall will discuss the eclipse and answer questions from Twitter. To ask a question, use #askNASA.
The supermoon eclipse will last 1 hour and 11 minutes, and will be visible to North and South America, Europe, Africa and parts of West Asia and the eastern Pacific.
