The first total eclipse of the moon since December 2011 will be visible in North America early Tuesday morning, April 15, AccuWeather.com reports.

The total eclipse, caused by earth's position between the moon and sun, will begin just before midnight Monday, around 11:53 p.m. Central Daylight Time. It will reach totality at 2:06 a.m. CDT and end at 3:24 a.m. CDT.

High pressure over Nebraska will bring clear skies and good viewing conditions not only to the state, but to most of the central U.S. and parts of the southwest, AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Brian Edwards said.

And, in addition to the eclipse, Mars will be on a close approach to the Earth, about 57 million miles away, accuweather said.
