The broadcast starts at 5:30 am EST before the eclipse begins and the telecast will feature views from different locations in the USA.
During the total lunar eclipse, the moon will shine red while passing from the shadow of the Earth. It will begin at 7:52 am ET on Wednesday, January 31, 2018. The time duration for the entire event is 1 hour and 16 minutes approximately. However, it will take around four hours before the moon exits the Earth’s shadow entirely.
In celestial language, the event is called lunar trifecta as it’s a combination of three different events at the same time. Western USA locations like Alaska and Hawaii are the perfect locations to view this eclipse. But, the moon will set and sun will rise in the eastern USA.
