Faint Eclipse of the Hunter's Moon (Oct. 18th)

Space Weather News for Oct. 18, 2013

FAINT LUNAR ECLIPSE: On the night of Oct. 18th, the full Hunter's
Moon will pass through the outskirts of Earth's shadow, producing a
faint "penumbral" lunar eclipse. This is much less dramatic than a
total lunar eclipse; nevertheless it should be easily visible to the
naked eye as a dusky shading in the southern half of the Moon. The
zone of visibility stretches from the eastern half of North America
across Europe and Africa to western parts of Asia. Check for maps and details.
