*"While skywatchers in North America, Asia, and Europe watch a bigger-than-

usual lunar eclipse on January 31, NASA engineers will shut down the 

instruments aboard the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO). Eclipses put a

keeping the spacecraft safe, as total lunar eclipses have occurred seven times 

since the orbiter's launch in 2009.

"Stages of the January 31, 2018 "super blue blood moon" (weather permitting) 

are depicted in Pacific Time with "moonset" times for major cities across the US, 

which affect how much of the event viewers will see. While viewers along the 

East Coast will see only the initial stages of the eclipse before moonset, those in 

the West and Hawaii will see most or all of the lunar eclipse phases before
