Sunday night into early Monday, a lunar eclipse will be visible across central Indiana, weather permitting, of course. The Earth will cast a shadow on the moon during the lunar eclipse. This happens because the Earth gets in between the sun and the moon. This causes a dark shadow on the moon. A total lunar eclipse means the entire moon will be blocked from the sun’s rays. The partial eclipse begins around 9:25 p.m, and continues until 2:50 a.m., reaching maximum eclipse time around 12:11 a.m. No glasses are needed to watch this eclipse, but a telescope would help you see it better. You can watch this with the naked eye.
