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 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!
