Sharp-eyed stargazers may be able to catch a celestial show if they’re up in the wee hours of the morning tomorrow.
The moon is expected to be dimmer than normal as it experiences a penumbral lunar eclipse.
“What we’ll see is the Moon being very bright, reflecting light from the sun, kind of moving into a shadow, sort of starting from the bottom of the Moon, over the course of the many hours of the morning.”
“Very subtly, you may start to see the curvature of that shadow, which is the really interesting part, because that of course is the shadow of the Earth.”
Unger says you may not even be able to notice the difference in the Moon’s brightness unless you’re watching the phenomenon over the full portion.
That is, of course, if the weather cooperates.
