New Hampshire to get view of total lunar eclipse Sunday night, if weather cooperates

Many eyes will be on the moon Sunday night for a total lunar eclipse that will be visible in New Hampshire and across North America.Skies over New Hampshire should be fair for Sunday’s eclipse, which starts at 10:27 p.m. and will appear as a total lunar eclipse from 11:29 p.m. to 12:53 a.m. The eclipse ends at 1:55 a.m.From our perspective, the moon is typically illuminated by sunlight, but as Earth passes between the sun and moon Sunday night, the moon will turn a dark-reddish hue. During the eclipse, sunlight will pass around the edge of our planet’s atmosphere and reflect off the moon to give it that color. Unlike solar eclipses, lunar eclipses are safe to view with the naked eye. Sunday’s lunar eclipse is the first of two lunar eclipses this year. Another will occur in November.
