FOX CROSSING (WLUK) -- A rather rare opportunity to enjoy the total lunar eclipse will be in the sky above Wisconsin tonight, and thanks to the clear forecast it should lead to great viewing.
FOX 11 spent the morning with Alan Peche at the Barlow Planetarium at UW-Fox Valley to learn more about what tonight's spectacle will be like, and how they plan to celebrate with a special viewing party for families.
The partial eclipse begins at 9:34 p.m. and reaches totality at 10:41 p.m. The moon will be at its darkest at 11:13 p.m. The eclipse ends at 12:51 a.m. The Barlow Planetarium will host a special Lunar Eclipse Viewing Family Night from 8:15 p.m. - 1:00 a.m. tonight with special events going on throughout the evening to stay warm, while also sneaking out to enjoy the space spectacle.
