​​​​A total lunar eclipse will be visible in Alberta early Tuesday morning (Nov. 8), assuming the weather allows it.

Those hoping to catch a glimpse will have to wake up pretty early, though it'll be visible for a good while.

The timeline is as follows:

  • 2:09 a.m. - partial eclipse begins
  • 3:16 a.m. - total eclipse begins
  • 3:59 a.m. - mid-eclipse
  • 4:42 a.m. - total eclipse ends
  • 5:49 a.m. - partial eclipse ends

In total, the blood red moon will be visible for 86 minutes.

Unlike some eclipses, this one is safe to view with the naked eye.

The next lunar eclipse will be on March 14, 2025.
