When is the next Total Lunar Eclipse?
The next five occasions you can watch the Moon turn crimson, orange and pink.
Although they’re relatively rare, a Total Lunar Eclipse is much more common than a Total Solar Eclipse. They’re also visible over a much, much wider area – as much as half the planet – so there’s no reason to travel to see one; just wait a few years for the Earth’s shadow to completely cover the Moon.

NASA’s lunar eclipse page is helpful, but Timeanddate.com is better if you want to see if your home town is in the eclipse path.
