PITTSBURGH (CNN/KDKA) – Make sure you look up July 5 for a chance to catch the penumbral lunar eclipse.
According to timeanddate.com, the best time to watch the penumbral lunar eclipse is at 12:29 a.m. July 5. It will start Saturday at 11:07 p.m. and end Sunday around 1:52 a.m.
You’ll have to look closely though, because a penumbral lunar eclipse is hard to see. The shadowed part of the moon will be slightly fainter than the rest of the moon.
July 5 will also see a Buck Moon, turned slightly darker by the eclipse.
Full moons in 2020
