Woman leads HPD on early morning chase

A woman suspected of theft led Huntsville Police on a car chase through north Huntsville early Monday morning. Police approached the woman at Walmart on Sparkman Drive to speak with her about claims she had stolen items from the store. While police tried to make contact with the woman, she sped off. The chase lasted for about 10 minutes before the woman hit a curb, bringing her to a stop. 

The woman, whose identity has not yet been released, was taken into custody. No words on what charges she may face.

Clouds cover view of Supermoon

Cloud cover across most of the Tennessee Valley Sunday evening prevented many from getting the view of the Supermoon and its eclipse that they wanted. Low-hanging clouds spent much of the day across North Alabama, with a few very brief breaks. Thanks to technology, however, live streams set up by NASA and hosted by the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville offered an impressive backup method. Streaming online coverage put out by NASA on Sunday was very popular.
