Lunar Eclipse 2021 Live Stream: Watch the Super Flower Blood Moon Online

Getty A rare super blood moon eclipse is happening.

Tonight a rare total lunar eclipse is taking place during a supermoon. Supermoons occur when the moon is full and closest to Earth. Because this one is also happening while the moon is passing through the Earth’s shadow, we’ll be able to see a beautiful large blood red moon in some regions. If you’re in a location where you can’t see the eclipse’s totality or if the weather isn’t cooperating, then you can watch the Super Flower Blood Red Moon online in the live streams below.

What Time Is the Eclipse?

Because the moon revolves around the Earth in an ellipse, not a perfect circle, supermoons happen when the moon is a little closer to Earth. The moon appears a little brighter and larger in the sky than normal.

Here’s a timeline for the phases of the lunar eclipse blood moon tonight, according to NASA:

  • At 1:46 a.m. Pacific, the eclipse begins.
  • The moon enters the darkest part of the Earth’s shadow around 2:45 a.m. Pacific
  • At about 3:20 a.m. Pacific, the moon is 50% covered by the Earth’s shadow
  • Totality takes place between 4:11 and 4:26 a.m. Pacific
  • At about 5:16 a.m. Pacific, the moon is 50% covered by the Earth’s shadow
  • The eclipse ends at 5:53 a.m. Pacific

The totality portion of the eclipse will be visible in the Pacific and Mountain time zones, plus in Texas, Oklahoma, Alaska, and western Kansas, NPR reported.

According to NASA, the totality “will be visible near moonset in the western United States and Canada, all of Mexico, most of Central America and Ecuador, western Peru, and southern Chile and Argentina.”

If you’re in Hawaii, you’ll be able to see the full eclipse from start to finish.
