Friday will be an special day for space lovers. Shreveport Bossier residents will get a glimpse of three special things out in space.

An eclipse will send a part of the world into a brief period of darkness. The eclipse will probably not be easy to see in North Louisiana, or in much of North America. Here's a chart from about the best places to spot the eclipse:


But that's not the only thing happening Friday. We will also see a Supermoon and it's also time for the Spring equinox.

A Supermoon happens when the full moon is closest to the Earth and this makes it seem huge. The spring equinox is that time when day and night are of equal lengths.

The solar eclipse refers to a phenomenon where the sun and moon line up, so that the latter obscures the former. And while it won’t be affected by the two other events, it is rare that the three events happen even individually.

If you want to take pictures of the solar eclipse on Friday, remember to use a solar filter. This will limit the amount of light that goes through the lens, protecting the camera from the bright light. And you should never look directly at the eclipse.
