The Next Lunar Eclipse Will Be Visible From Louisiana And You Won’t Want To Miss Out

Do you remember the epic solar eclipse from 2017, when the entire nation stopped to stare at the sky as our sun faded eerily from view? Well, there’s another astronomical event coming up in just a few short weeks, though you won’t have to wear those goofy glasses to see it!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

If you want to see the celestial spectacle, turn your eyes to the sky at 9:30 p.m. to watch it unfold. The totality – the point at which the Sun, Moon, and Earth are in perfect alignment and the best time to see the moon fully obscured – will occur just after 11:30 p.m.
