Ottum, a member of the University of Michigan Lowbrow Astronomers, says the weather forecast looks favorable for seeing the entire lunar eclipse from southeast Michigan.
It will begin around 10:40 Sunday night with the shadow of the earth looking like it is biting out a portion of the moon at that time.
Because it will be so cold, Ottum suggests first taking a peek of the eclipse outside around 11pm. He suggests then going back inside to warm up and look at the moon again around midnight to see the total lunar eclipse.
He says the darkness of the lunar eclipse will last a full hour from 11:40pm until 12:40am.
