(WXIN) – In addition to fireworks, there’s something else that will catch your attention in the night sky this holiday weekend—the buck moon eclipse.
The buck moon eclipse will cause the moon to look darker on July 4 and 5. During this kind of eclipse, the sun, Earth and moon align, and the moon passes through earth’s shadow.
The full buck moon will rise after sunset on Saturday, and it will reach peak illumination at 12:44 a.m., according to Almanac.com. The eclipse will be visible at 11:04 p.m. on Saturday and end at 1:56 a.m. on Sunday.
The eclipse will be visible from all of North America.
