This year Hawaii is the host of two(!) total lunar eclipses: One at April 14th and one at October 8th. The lunar eclipse of April 14th starts just before 7 pm Hawaiian time and ends half an hour after midnight on April 15th. The moon will be totally eclipsed between 21:08 and 22:23 on April 14th. The best time to see the eclipse is between 21:30 and 22:00.

As always, stargazing events are a great reason to go out into the lush Hawaiian night and spend with your friends. Have a look at our Hawaii stargazing guide for more stargazing tips.
