HOUSTON — A total lunar eclipse is graced the night sky across Texas Sunday.

The eclipse is slightly different from the one experienced this past October. The moon this time around was in totality for nearly an hour and a half, compared with only 15 minutes back in October.

During this eclipse, 100% of the moon was obscured by the darker portion of Earth’s shadow known as the umbra during totality turning the Full Blood Moon a coppery red color.

Viewing times for this eclipse were also ideal for those not interested in waking up in the middle of the night. Here’s the eclipse viewing times in Houston:

  • Partial Eclipse: 9:27 PM Sunday
  • The moon enters Totality: 10:29 PM
  • The moon exits Totality: 11:53 PM (That’s a 1 hour and 24-minute window to catch the moon in totality)
  • End of partial eclipse: 12:55 AM


This is the first of two total lunar eclipses in 2022 that will be visible in Houston. The next one occurs on Nov. 7.

Will the weather cooperate? KHOU 11 Meteorologist Pat Cavlin says it should!
