HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -  People can talk directly with astronomers at NASA during Monday night's lunar eclipse.

Astronomers at Marshall Space Flight Center are hosting a pair of live web chats to answer questions.

The eclipse is set to begin over the Valley at 11:29 Monday night and last more than an hour. It will change colors from bright orange to dark red.

"We have people, really, from around the world who are asking questions about the eclipse right now and directing them to web sites where they can find more details and maybe video feeds tonight." Said Marshall Center astronomer Rob Suggs.
