Lunar Eclipse To Highlight Night Time Sky

Lunar Eclipse Full
Kevin Koile – TownSquare Media

Some may view it as romantic, while others might see it as the end of the world, in regards to a rare astronomical phenomenon.

A lunar eclipse is scheduled to take place Monday night/early Tuesday April 14th-15th, as the Earth will pass between the sun and moon.

As a result, the Earth will cast its shadow on its orbiting satellite.

Rod Kennedy with the Casper Planetarium says the event doesn’t happen often, because the moon’s orbit around the Earth is tilted.

When the eclipse happens, instead of turning black, the moon turns red.

“Some of the light from the sun, gets refracted or bent, through Earth’s atmosphere, and it’s the longer wavelengths of light, it’s the red light that gets bent most and falls on the moon.”

The eclipse is scheduled to start at around 11pm Monday, and run for a little more than 5 1/2 hours.
