In case you want to get away from all the city lights.
The Super Blood Flower Moon eclipse is taking place on Wednesday, May 26, and you can get away from city lights and head to these national parks if you want to get really amazing views.
While most of Canada will be able to see at least some of this celestial event, totality — when the moon turns red — will only be visible out west.
Canada is home to 13 Dark-Sky Preserves, which are protected areas that preserve the night sky by reducing or completely eliminating light pollution. Four of them are prime locations for viewing the eclipse, and even if you don't want to go into the park at night, you can still take advantage of the dark sky around the park to get stunning views of the moon.
Grasslands National Park
Location: Val Marie, SK
Why You Need To Go: Saskatchewan's Grasslands National Park is the darkest Dark-Sky Preserve in Canada. Totality begins at 5:11 a.m. local time and reaches its peak at 5:18 a.m. local time.
Jasper National Park
Location: Jasper, AB
Why You Need To Go: You can see the total eclipse from Jasper National Park and watch the moon turn red. Totality begins at 5:11 a.m., peaks at 5:18 a.m. and ends at 5:25 a.m.
Wood Buffalo National Park
Location: Fort Smith, NT
Why You Need To Go: At over 44,000 sq. km, this is the largest Dark-Sky Preserve in the world. Only the partial lunar eclipse will be visible from the park but part of the moon will still turn red. The max begins at 4:46 a.m. local time.
Elk Island National Park
Location: Fort Saskatchewan, AB
Why You Need To Go: You can see the total lunar eclipse from this park, located a 30-minute drive outside of Edmonton. Totality begins at 5:11 a.m. and peaks at 5:18 a.m.
