Total Lunar Eclipse

Local News

A total lunar eclipse will be visible late Sunday night in Mississippi. The eclipse will start at 8:36pm, but the entire moon will be in the shadow of the Earth for 62 minutes from 10:41pm to 11:43pm Sunday. The eclipse will be over by 1:48am Monday. There will be a full Supermoon Sunday night because the moon will be closer to the Earth. A full moon in January is also called a Wolf Moon. When the total eclipse happens the moon will turn a deep shade of red. That means you’ll be able to see a rare Super Blood Wolf Moon Sunday night for about an hour. The sky will be clear Sunday night so you should have no problem seeing the moon but if you’re going to go outside to watch it, dress for cold weather. Temperatures will be just below freezing Sunday night at 11pm. The next total lunar eclipse visible in Mississippi will be in May 2021.
