Cloudy night for lunar eclipse
April 14, 2014 - Nikki Younk
The first of four total lunar eclipses in a span of two years will grace our skies tonight. Unfortunately, we here in the Dickinson County area may have some difficulty seeing it through the clouds.
The entire lunar eclipse event will take place over several hours, from about midnight to 5 a.m. Tuesday. Prime viewing time will be at about 2:46 a.m.
The National Weather Service predicts “decreasing clouds” for the overnight hours, so we may have a chance to see the moon glow red. Those who plan to venture out should dress warmly — temperatures will get as low as 13 degrees.
If clouds do end up ruining our view of this lunar eclipse, at least we’ve got three others in the near future to look forward to. There’ll be one in October, one in April 2015, and one in September 2015.
