Total eclipse, super blood moon this Sunday

The moon will turn red in the sky over North Mississippi on Sunday night during a total lunar eclipse. This type of eclipse is a super blood moon.

This event occurs during a full moon when the moon passes directly over the Earth’s shadow. This causes it to turn red in color.

This will be the last total lunar eclipse of the decade.

The eclipse will begin around 8:30 pm central time and will be most visible around an hour later. It is set to end around midnight.

This will be the first total lunar eclipse visible across the U.S. since Dec. 21, 2010.  The next one is not until May 26, 2021
