When to watch Sunday night's Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse

The eclipse begins around 9:33 p.m. CST, with totality beginning around 10:41 p.m. CST.

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — The celestial curtain will be rising soon on a lunar extravaganza.

Sunday night, the Earth will slide directly between the moon and the sun, creating a total lunar eclipse. There won't be another until 2021.

It will also be the year's first supermoon, when a full moon appears a little bigger and brighter thanks to its slightly closer position.

The entire eclipse will exceed three hours. Totality - when the moon's completely bathed in Earth's shadow - will last an hour. Expect the eclipsed, or blood moon, to turn red from sunlight scattering off Earth's atmosphere.

The eclipse begins around 9:33 p.m. CST, with totality beginning around 10:41 p.m. CST.

Everyone everywhere can catch the supermoon, weather permitting. But the entire eclipse will be visible only in North and South America, and across the Atlantic to western and northern Europe.
