Does This Eclipse Make My Moon Look Big?

Great news!  There will be a partial lunar eclipse tomorrow.

Sadly, I won’t see it unless I hope a redeye flight to the other side of the world.

In 2013, there will be three lunar eclipses – a 27-minute partial on April 25-26, and two penumbrals. The 2013 lunar eclipses will be interesting, as always, despite the fact that none will be total. There’s info about each eclipse in this post. But first … the upcoming lunar eclipse, a partial, on April 25-26, 2013. Its main distinction is that it’ll be the third-shortest partial lunar eclipse of the 21st century. Only a tiny sliver of the moon will be covered by the Earth’s umbral shadow at maximum eclipse. We in North America won’t be able to see this eclipse. It’ll be daytime for us – and the moon will be down – for the entire thing. The April 25, 2013 partial lunar eclipse will be visible over Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia. via EarthSky.org
