(SPOT.ph) A total lunar eclipse is happening tonight, November 8, giving Filipinos a reason to look up to the night sky. But for those who can't (or won't) go outside for the viewing, good news: you can watch it indoors via livestream thanks to PAGASA

The blood moon, named for its reddish hue that only happens when fully eclipsed, will be visible anywhere in the Philippines for about 86 minutes. It won't happen again until March 2025, according to NASA, so don't miss it.

The blood moon happening this November is the last of the major astronomical events we can witness from the Philippines, said senior weather specialist Mario Raymundo.

The blood moon will begin to show itself starting 6:16 p.m. and will reach its greatest eclipse at around 6:59 p.m, before its partial eclipse until 8:49 p.m.

Unlike a solar eclipse, a lunar eclipse is safe to view with the naked eye because it only reflect sunlight.
