Blood Moon

If the clouds stay away on Sunday night, you’ll have a chance to see a lunar treat in the skies.

A total supermoon eclipse, or bloodmoon as it’s often called, will happen Sunday night into Monday morning.

The full moon will be in its closest point in orbit around the Earth. This will cause the moon to appear 14-percent larger and 33-percent brighter than a typical full moon. The eclipse will cause the blood-red color due to light interference from the path of the earth.

It should begin shortly after 9 p.m. in Indiana, and last about 3.5 hours.

This is the first time these conditions have come together since 1982, and won’t happen again until 2033.

Will we be able to see it in Michiana? Maybe. The National Weather Service is calling for increasing clouds and a chance of rain Sunday night for the listening area.
