Missed the super blue blood moon eclipse? Here's when you'll see the next one.

Missed the super blue blood moon eclipse? Here\'s when you\'ll see the next one.

Did you miss today's super blue blood moon eclipse? Don't fret, you'll get another chance to see some sky spectacles within the next year.

The next lunar eclipse that will be visible in North America which will also be the next supermoon is less than a year away, on Jan. 21, 2019. Unlike today's eclipse, that eclipse will be visible across the entire U.S., so no one will be left out of the excitement then.

During a lunar eclipse, the moon appears to take on a reddish hue, so next January's eclipse will also be the next "blood" moon.

There is a lunar eclipse without the supermoon on July 27 of this year, but it won't be visible anywhere in the U.S. It will be a treat for folks in Asia, Africa and Europe.

The next blue moon the second full moon in a calendar month is only two months away, on March 31. Alas, it won't be a supermoon, nor will there be an eclipse at the same time. And, of course, it won't appear blue.

As for a solar eclipse, you've got a longer wait. Although there will be three partial solar eclipses this year, none will be seen in the U.S.

The next total eclipse of the sun visible in the U.S. will occur on April 8, 2024. That gives you plenty of time to stock up on those eclipse glasses you tossed after the big eclipse last August.
