Lunar Eclipse: Where to see it in the USA

It’s Friday in April, which means all sorts of things are happening. No, it’s not the temperature reading on your thermometer, it’s Friday in April, which means all sorts of things are happening.

This is the time when Americans can observe a lunar eclipse, which occurs when the Earth passes between the sun and the moon.

When the moon’s shadow changes shape – the light from the sun can cast something called a “twilight glow” – the moon begins to appear reddish. For most of the USA, the event will begin between 10:15 and 10:30 p.m. The total eclipse will begin at 1:45 a.m.

Some states will see the entirety of the eclipse, while others will only get a portion.
