Total Supermoon eclipse to be seen in Indiana skies Sunday night

If the clouds stay away on Sunday night, you’ll have a chance to see a lunar treat in the skies.

A total Supermoon eclipse, or “blood moon” as it’s often called, will happen Sunday night into Monday morning.

The full moon will be in its closest point in orbit around the Earth. This will cause the moon to appear 14 percent larger and 33 percent brighter than a typical full moon.

The eclipse will cause the blood-red color due to light interference from the path of the earth. It should begin shortly after 9 p.m. in Indiana, and last about 3.5 hours.

This is the first time these conditions have come together since 1982, and won’t happen again until 2033.
