CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Local weather conditions were not ideal to view Tuesday morning's lunar eclipse. Cloud cover blotted out the view of the moon.

However, Cincinnati weather did not stop one area astronomer. 

Dean Regas, an Outreach Astronomer for the Cincinnati Observatory, loaded up the telescope, hopped in his car and headed west to see the heavenly show from Illinois. 

The site was ideal for the lunar eclipse viewing.

Regas says even though most local residents missed this eclipse, three more will be visible in the next 18 months.

The next total lunar eclipses will occur on:

  • October 8, 2014
  • April 4, 2015
  • September 27, 2015

    LMPD and the Ferguson effect

    Friday, February 24 2017 11:34 PM EST2017-02-25 04:34:33 GMT

    For the past few years, officer involved shootings have led to unprecedented protests. Backlash and violence at times have been so severe, some police said it made them hesitate or even avoid some actions on the job. It's called the Ferguson effect - a reference to the Missouri town where an officer shot Michael Brown in 2014.
