The second total lunar eclipse of the year will be visible tonight, 10 December. Here’s the map showing you where to look when. The eclipse will be visible in most of the populated world. Sorry, South America, west Africa, and Antarctica, not for you.

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
