A total lunar eclipse happens when the Earth’s shadow blocks the sun’s rays that usually reflect off the moon. This happens when the sun, earth, and moon are aligned in a straight line. For those in North America and the Hawaiian Islands, the 2018 total lunar eclipse will be visible before sunrise on January 31. For those in the Middle East, Asia, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand, this lunar eclipse will happen after sunset on January 31.
