A total lunar eclipse will be visible for about an hour just before midnight this Sunday in Upstate NY. The moon will be covered by the earths shadow, and the sunset will bend around the earths atmosphere and give the moon a beautiful red glow. This eclipse will take place during a super moon as well, when the moon is in the closest point of orbit to the earth.
It will begin at 10:45 PM on Sunday and will be completely shrouded in the earths shadow by about 11:50. Total lunar eclipses are visible about every 2.5 years from a given spot on earth. Don't get too excited yet- forecast indicates we may be getting some snow, and knowing upstate NY the total lunar eclipse may not be visible at all due to overcast.
