CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — The celestial curtain will be rising soon on a lunar extravaganza. Sunday night, the Earth will slide directly between the moon and the sun, creating a total lunar eclipse. There won't be another until 2021. It will also be the year's first supermoon, when a full moon appears a little bigger and brighter thanks to its slightly closer position. If skies are clear, the entire eclipse will be visible only in North and South America, and parts of Europe.

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A teen at the center of a video confrontation with a Native American organizer of a march in the nation's capital says he did nothing to provoke anyone and sought to calm the situation. The student identified himself in an email Sunday evening as a junior at a Catholic high school in Kentucky and adds he did not hear students say anything "racist or hateful" at any time.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats and Republicans appear no closer to ending the dispute that led to a partial government shutdown 30 days ago. On Sunday, President Donald Trump criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for turning down his offer of a compromise, saying she is acting "irrationally." Criticism of Trump's offer of temporary help to some young immigrants in the U.S. illegally in exchange for border wall funding is complicating his effort to win some Democratic support.

BOSTON (AP) — A winter storm that covered parts of the Midwest and Northeast in snow this weekend has manifested into a bitter freeze. The National Weather Service says temperatures across the Great Lakes, Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic will drop 10 to 20 degrees below average Monday, with wind chills near 40 below zero hitting the Northeast.

UNDATED (AP) — Three years after the Supreme Court gave inmates who committed crimes as juveniles a chance at freedom, the justice system is gaining speed in revisiting scores of cases. About 400 offenders originally sentenced to life without parole as juveniles have been released nationwide. But most remain behind bars as prosecutors and judges wrestle with difficult cases.
