Lunar Eclipse This Saturday

Updated:
Residents across eastern Oklahoma can witness a lunar eclipse on Saturday evening, March 3rd.

In this lunar eclipse, the moon will covered by the Earth's shadow as night falls. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth, and Moon form a nearly straight line in space, so that the full Moon passes through Earth's shadow.

Unlike a solar eclipse, you can watch a lunar eclipse with your unaided eyes. Binoculars or a telescope will enhance the view dramatically.

It's been 2 and a half years since the last total lunar eclipse in the U.S.
