LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Eyes to the sky! A total lunar eclipse will be visible in Arkansas on November 8. If you want to see this one, you’ll have to be an early bird.
The good news is that the weather conditions seem favorable if you wish to see it. We will finish Monday evening with some cloud cover, but the clouds should slowly dissipate overnight. Temperatures will also be mild in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
The penumbral eclipse will begin at 2:02 a.m., but that part won’t be super noticeable to the naked eye. The particle eclipse will begin about an hour later at 3:09 a.m.
The main event really kicks off after 4am. The total eclipse begins at 4:16 a.m. with a maximum at 4:59 a.m. Totally will end at 5:41.
Moonset occurs at 6:44 a.m., so you won’t be able to see part of the second partial eclipse or penumbral eclipse.
If you miss this total lunar eclipse, you’ll have to wait a while to see it again. The next one will take place in 2025 on March 13 and 14.
However, a total solar eclipse is imminent for Arkansas. Mark your calendars, on April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will be visible through the natural state.
