TUCSON, AZ — In case you're not able to see the total lunar eclipse on Sunday or want to view it through the lens of a telescope, the University of Arizona Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter plans to livestream the entire astronomical event on its YouTube channel. We've embedded a link below. It is scheduled to start at 8:30 p.m.

During the "super wolf blood moon," also known as a total lunar eclipse, the Earth will pass between the sun and the moon, casting a shadow on the moon. As light from the sun travels and refracts through the Earth's atmosphere, the moon will have a red-orange tint.

The partial lunar eclipse will take place around 8:30 p.m. with the total lunar eclipse happening at 9:41 p.m. The total lunar eclipse will last about an hour, the SkyCenter said.

You can go outside and see it for yourself, too, as long as the clouds do not come in too strong. Right now, some clouds are forecast in the Valley on Sunday.
