Tomorrow night, we will welcome a full moon. If it’s clear, be sure to look up to see a Blood Moon lunar eclipse. The full moon will slip into the Earth’s shadow over the course of three and a half hours.
While we will not be experiencing a full lunar eclipse, the event is still set to be spectacular. At its peak, only a small sliver (2.6%) of the moon will remain lit by the sun.
This partial eclipse is set to be a great example of what’s known as the Japanese Lantern Effect. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the surface of the moon will appear the color of glowing copper, gradating down to a beautiful “uneclipsed yellow sliver”.
