Rare Eclipse Coming Sunday

May 17, 2012, 5:10 PM by Ben Cathey

Rare Eclipse Coming Sunday

Sunday evening, a solar eclipse will skirt the western horizon right before sunset. The sun's orbit will dip behind the moon leaving a bright red ring.

The last time this happened was 1994.

It's a beautiful sight and although we all look up at the same sun and moon, the view won't be the same for everyone. KELOLAND will see a very impressive but, incomplete eclipse. Astronomers say it will start around 7:20 p.m. central time and 6:20 p.m. mountain time.

The eclipse will peak about an hour later.

Looking directly at the eclipse is dangerous.

Experts recommend projecting the eclipse onto white cardboard.
