Weather permitting, Alaskans will be able to see a total lunar eclipse early Saturday morning. When the moon is completely immersed in the Earth's shadow, it is expected to turn a reddish-orange color for a few fleeting minutes.

Introduction

Whether reporting on powerful oil companies or on residents who live far from the urban centers where decisions are made, Alaska Dispatch's goal is to take an unflinching look at the state, from its massive riches to its abject poverty, and tell these stories to Alaskans and to the world.
