Lunar eclipse not visible for Oklahoma, forecasters say

Posted: Updated:

Staff and wire reports

A total lunar eclipse will occur Wednesday night, but Oklahomans are not likely to view the celestial event, said forecasters.

Wednesday night, the lunar eclipse should be visible from many parts of North and South America. However, Oklahoma's sky is likely be too cloudy for Okies to see the night's sky, said NEWS 9 meteorologist Carrie Rose.

Those able to see the sky should be able to see Saturn and the bright star Regulus on either side of the full moon. With a telescope, sky viewers might even see Saturn's rings.

Cloudy skies are also expected for many of the other western states, and there's a chance of snow from the heartland to the East Coast.

The next total eclipse is not set to happen for another three years.
