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

If you love the night sky, then there’s an upcoming event you’re not going to want to miss. A total lunar eclipse is something that occurs more than one time in a year, but the one that’s happening the night of January 20th is special for a number of reasons. And even better – North Carolina will be a prime location for witnessing it all.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
