Where to Watch May’s Full Moon and the Supermoon Eclipse

Last edited 5/25/2021

There are three celestial events happening with our Moon this month, including a supermoon eclipse.

Depending on where you are, you will be able to view a full moon, a supermoon and a total lunar eclipse on the same day. If you’re in the western United States, you can watch the total eclipse phase (when the Moon takes on a rusty or blood-red color). You can experience the eclipse in its entirety if you’re in the Pacific Islands — including Hawai'i. And, for those in places where the eclipse won't be visible, you can watch the action online.
