Three Astronomical Events In One Night! Here’s What To Expect On Friday
Night sky grazers and astronomers alike will surely be delighted on Friday evening as a full moon, lunar eclipse, particularly a penumbral lunar eclipse and the chance to see a pale green comet is bound to streak by the Earth in a triple astrological delight. A number of experts have revealed that this month's so-called Snow Moon will allegedly pass through Earth's outer shadow Friday evening. As it is shaded from the sun's light, it will turn varying shades of gray.
Three Astronomical Events
According to reports revealed by Sputnik News, astronomers have explained that the name "snow moon" has been given to the lunar phenomenon because it's predictably the snowiest month in the US. Lunar eclipses, on the other hand, have been noted to take place when the Earth is optimally placed between the sun and the moon. Then, just a few hours after the said penumbral eclipse, NASA authorities said that Comet 45P, which is also known as the New Year Comet, will make its closest approach to Earth at a distance of over seven million miles away. However, NASA has highly emphasized that the eclipse will only be visible from Europe, Africa, western Asia and eastern North and South America. As for the New Year Comet, experts say that the greenish comet will be visible by telescope and binoculars, but not to the naked eye.
Where To See This Astronomical Event?
Furthermore, as reported by The Washington Post, the Slooh Observatory's live feed from various locations will begin at 5:30 p.m. with the lunar eclipse. It was found that experts will weigh in with a play-by-play around 7:30 p.m. during the eclipse maximum. Coincidentally, experts have also revealed that as the next lunar eclipse in this series is Feb. 22, 2035, is also George Washington's 303rd birthday.
