On Jan. 20 the night sky will host the “super wolf blood Moon” as the eclipse glows red over North America for the first time in three years. 

The lunar phenomenon will begin at 11:41 p.m. ET on Jan. 20 and peak around 12:16 a.m. ET on Jan. 21 (NASA). 

Other continents will be able to see a partial eclipse, but the U.S. East Coast will have the best view. In Cuba, the moon is supposed to be directly overhead.  

Viewers should be certain to find a dark spot to watch the eclipse and maybe even bring binoculars. Human eyes take a while to adjust to darkness, so be sure to be early to adjust.
