Buck Moon and penumbral lunar eclipse tonight

By Mario Lotmore | Lynnwood Times Staff

The Buck Moon, or full Moon, will be appearing opposite the Sun at 9:44 p.m. PST. This will result in a partial penumbral eclipse of the Moon, visible from most of North America; however, it will be difficult to see with the naked eye.

In a penumbral lunar eclipse, the moon passes only through the Earth’s outer shadow as oppose to a total lunar eclipse when the moon goes completely dark.

The penumbral lunar eclipse will begin 8:07 p.m. PST and continue until 10:52 p.m. PST.  The eclipse will be most visible at 9:30 p.m. PST – its peak.

On Sunday night into Monday morning, July 5 to 6, 2020, the full Moon and the planets Jupiter and Saturn will form a triangle.
