Total lunar eclipse visible Sunday

After this weekend, Crittenden County residents won’t get another chance to see a total lunar eclipse until 2019, according to Clifton Laney, Western Kentucky University’s observatory education scientist. At 7:12 p.m., the moon will enter the outer part of the Earth’s shadow and become dimmer, according to information provided by Laney. The moon will enter the Earth’s inner shadow at 8:07 p.m. before fully passing into the shadow at 9:11 p.m. After that, the moon will look “coppery or even reddish” until 10:23 p.m., when it begins to slip out of the shadow.
