The 2016 Harvest Moon eclipse will be the last one for 8 years — here’s how to see it

There’s only one more eclipse left in 2016. Fortunately, it’s going to be awesome. The Sept. 16 lunar eclipse coincides with a Harvest Moon, meaning you’ll see a giant, orange moon overtaken by the shadow of the Earth. And if you miss it, bad news — it’s the last of its kind until 2024.

Here’s how and when to watch this year’s Harvest Moon penumbral eclipse:

The best-possible view of the eclipse, when it’s at its “deepest and darkest,” is at 2:54 p.m. eastern time, according to National Geographic — but only if you live in Europe, Africa, Asia or Australia. If you don’t live in any of those places, don’t worry — the Slooh observatory launches its Harvest Moon penumbral lunar eclipse live stream on Friday, September 16, at 12:45pm eastern time.
