Total 'blood moon' eclipse to rise over US this weekend

Dot

The moon will plunge into darkness this weekend to create a celestial spectacle that has not been seen in the sky over the entire contiguous United States since the turn of the decade.

Just as the sun sets over North America on Sunday evening, the sun, Earth and moon will begin to align to create a total lunar eclipse.

Folks may have to stay awake later than usual for a chance to see Sunday night's eclipse as it unfolds throughout the first half of the night

However, losing some sleep will be worth it as the eclipse could be the top astronomy event of 2022.

This weekend's event will be the first total lunar eclipse visible from the entire contiguous U.S. since Jan. 21, 2019.

There was a total lunar eclipse visible from the country on May 26, 2021, but it could be seen from only the western U.S., Alaska and Hawaii.
