Everything You Need To Know About The “Blood Moon” Lunar Eclipse

Before we go any further, I think we need to have the right soundtrack.

There we go. That’s better. Alright Bright eyes, listen up. On January 20-21, we’re going to be treated to one of my favorite celestial events: a total lunar eclipse.

Although we’re in a way better position to view the lunar eclipse than we were for the 2017 solar eclipse, we are expecting some weather this weekend that may hamper visibility. The snow is supposed to be done and over by Sunday night, but we are still expecting a cloudy sky. However, this is Ohio. So we shouldn’t count anything out just yet.

All that being said, here are the deets.

At 10:33 p.m. on Sunday night, the partial lunar eclipse will begin and we’ll all definitely notice its change in color. By 11:41 p.m., the total lunar eclipse will begin, turning the moon a vibrant reddish color. The eclipse will peak at 12:12 a.m. and will continue to lessen until it ends around 2 a.m.

As long as the sky clears up in time, we should be able to get a spectacular view of the blood moon. Plus, none of us have to use any special equipment to view it 🙄👇
