Full Worm Moon brings 1st lunar eclipse of 2024 next week. Here’s how to see it

During the next two weeks, there will be two eclipses on the astronomical docket. The main event, of course, will be the Great North American Eclipse on April 8 that will stretch from the Pacific coast of Mexico, on to Texas and across southern and eastern portions of the United States and Atlantic Canada, before coming to an end over the north Atlantic Ocean. 

But two weeks before the total solar eclipse, during the overnight hours of March 24-25, it will be the moon’s turn to undergo an eclipse; a prelude to grand event coming our way in early April. That final full moon before the total solar eclipse, March’s Worm Moon, will quietly slip into Earth’s outer shadow, known as the penumbra.
