TOMS RIVER, NJ – If you were able to stay up late Sunday night, you would have seen a full lunar eclipse here at the Jersey Shore. Around 11:30 pm, the bottom portion of the moon began fading before being taken over by the trademark orange hue of the lunar eclipse that lasted through its peak shortly after midnight.
By 2 am, the moon was back shining in the sky. After days of clouds and rain, the clouds parted in time for a stellar view of the moon, with thick cloud cover returning on queue within twenty minutes of the end of the eclipse.
If you missed it, the next lunar eclipse is set to take place on November 8th, but if you live on the east coast, that means getting up at 4:09 am to watch it.
