Astronomical Event

This will be the best lunar eclipse until Jan 21, 2019!

A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes completely through the Earth’s dark shadow, or umbra. During this type of eclipse, the Moon will gradually get darker and then take on a rusty or blood red color.

The Moon is above the horizon during this eclipse, so with good weather conditions in Visalia, the entire eclipse is visible.
