Special lunar eclipse Sunday night

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The only complete lunar eclipse of the year will happen Sunday evening. If the weather cooperates, it will be especially brilliant due to the fact the moon will be undergoing a close pass to Earth, making it appear slightly bigger in the sky. 

During totality, the moon will appear blood red as it passes through Earth's shadow. This is where the term "blood moon" comes from. We will begin to see the moon transform just before midnight at 11:41 p.m. Sunday. The effect will last for about an hour.
