North American observers can watch the Moon turn a reddish hue as it flirts with Earth’s shadow on the night of November 18–19 in the longest partial eclipse of the century.
Two weeks after a total eclipse of the Moon, skywatchers in some parts of North America will witness an annular or partial eclipse of the Sun.
The total lunar eclipse of May 26th — the first in more than two years — favors western North America, but much of the continent will see the partial phases, provided skies are clear.
If it’s clear on the morning of Tuesday February 18th, you could see Mars wink out as the Moon passes in front of the Red Planet. You’ll have to get up before or at sunrise to witness the event, but if skies are clear in your location, it will be well worth it.

The total lunar eclipse of January 2019 promises to be a spectacle for those under clear skies in the zones of totality.
