Full Moon Friday Evening

A faint shadow from the Earth is cast over part of the Moon during a penumbral lunar eclipse seen from Manila Philippines. Early Saturday Feb. 11 2017 a partial eclipse and Comet 45P will share the sky Lunar eclipse, rare comet to be visible Friday night

As the Earth's shadow (umbra, as shown below) misses the Moon during a penumbral lunar eclipse, there are no other locations on Earth where the Moon appears partially or totally eclipsed during this event. "This is when the moon is passing through the faint part, or diffuse part, of the Earth's shadow". This type of eclipse occurs a few times per year, but most people don't even notice it when they're looking at the moon, because it's not as dramatic as a full eclipse or a partial eclipse.

The best time to view the event will be mid-eclipse at 12.45am, although it will begin at 10.34pm on Friday and end at 2.53am on Saturday. It will also be the closest comet encounter in over 30 years, so it's certainly a must-see for avid skywatchers. You will need something strong such as a pair of good binoculars or a telescope to actually pinpoint it.

There will indeed be a lunar eclipse tonight; in fact it's the first of two lunar eclipses in 2017. His lecture will be followed by an observation of the full moon and lunar eclipse through multiple telescopes. It's not too far east from Vega, one of the brightest stars in the sky, so that may help point you in the right direction. "But don't expect it to look the reddish/orange color that the total lunar eclipse looks like". Comet 45P will appear blueish-green due to vaporizing diatomic carbon, which appears green in space's near-vacuum conditions.

Taylor Gabriel Mic'd Up In Super Bowl Warned Teammate About Brady's Comeback
A shellshocked Brady looked bereft after his interception blunder and it got worse for the Patriots early in the third quarter. The Falcons still were up 16 points on their next drive, but the Patriots' defense sacked Ryan and forced a fumble.

A penumbral lunar eclipse is not as noticeable as a partial or total lunar eclipse since the moon passes through only the outermost part of the Earth's shadow.

The most unusual sight of the weekend will also be the hardest to see.

This is because the Earth would just block a portion of the sun's light from the moon and not the whole of it. Remember, the moon will have risen just prior to the eclipses full effect, so you'll to look very low in the sky by the eastern horizon to see it. Throughout the world, there will be different times for the events to be visible. The comet's estimated brightness at its closest and brightest is magnitude +7, outside the limit of seeing it with the naked eye.
