Sky watchers are in for a treat this week, as three celestial events are set to coincide, putting on a spectacular display in the night sky.
The following comes from space.com:
February’s Snow Moon will be no ordinary full moon for skywatchers in most parts of the world, as it coincides with a special lunar eclipse that will cast a shadow over the full moon’s usual bright, glowing face.
On Friday (Feb. 10), just 10 minutes after the full moon peaks, so will a penumbral lunar eclipse. The moon will spend more than 4 hours coasting through Earth’s outer shadow, called the penumbra, and it will appear darker than normal.
