Skywatcher Alert: Total Lunar Eclipse 6:59a Nov 8th 2022 (or catch the next one in 2025) *update: you might see some fireballs

Early on the morning of Tuesday, November 8, 2022 it's the last total lunar eclipse of the year! You remember Total Lunar Eclipses... that's where Zombie AND werewolf activity has a significant increase * ( ). It's ALSO where the Sun, Earth and Moon line up for your viewing pleasure. Here on the East Coast we get a great view! ( unless it's cloudy ). The greatest eclipse will happen at 6:59a on Nov 8th. *While all the lunar eclipse stuff is happening, it's also time for the Taurid Meteor Showers...      "best observing time is before the full moon arrives on November 8. But, if you’re out on the morning of November 8 watching the total lunar eclipse, you might get lucky and spot some Taurid fireballs as well ... If observing during the evening hours, look eastward. Those viewing after 2 a.m. should face west. If the moon is in the sky, keep it out of your field of view to avoid ruining your night vision." (via https://earthsky.o
