ABC-7 StormTRACK Weather: Look up at tonight’s Lunar Eclipse

Hello all. Still looking for that 100 degree temp, but as of 5:31 PM, we have not reached it yet. Still, it's been a very hot day...almost all of us reached the upper 90s today. It's time to carry a couple bottles of water with you everywhere you go now, to make sure you are all good. Winds haven't been too breezy today, and I think they'll stay down for most of the week as well.

I also wanted to recover from last night. Dylan asked me what a lunar eclipse was, and I explained what a solar eclipse was (dumb...I know...I should've done my research before talking about it...well I kind of did, but totally forgot the order of the sun/Earth/Moon). That being said, the actual order of tonight's eclipse will be sun, Earth, then the Moon. The Earth will create a shadow on the Moon that will look red/orange. It looks that way because the sun will scatter all the blue and green light, only leaving red and orange light to reflect off of the Moon. The eclipse will begin at 7:45 PM, peak at 10:11 PM, and end around 1 AM.

Tomorrow will be hot and sweaty like today was. Winds won't be too bad. Stay cool everyone!
