Lunar eclipse, comet starring in night sky show this weekend

Posted February 11, 2017

So the sun, earth and the moon will be aligned, but the earth will block some of that sunlight casting a shadow on the moon. It will be visible everywhere on Earth except Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand and East Asian nations bordering the Pacific.

A lunar eclipse can only happen at full moon, but more often than not the full moon swings above or below the Earth's shadow. While not as noticeable as a total lunar eclipse, the penumbral eclipse still occurs when the moon crosses through the Earth's shadow, just not the darkest part. The comet will get within 7.4 million miles of the planet as it makes its closest approach this weekend, according to Universe Today. During this "full snow moon eclipse", the moon will be completely shaded, making the change easier to see.

February's full moon is dubbed the "snow moon".
