At a glance: Hunter’s moon

By From page B2 | October 16, 2013

Escabar_MimiOn Friday, Oct. 18 there is a penumbral eclipse of the Moon. This is when the moon slides through the northern part of the Earth’s penumbral shadow. At mid-eclipse, 76 percent of the moon’s diameter will be immersed in the penumbra, probably deep enough to cause a faint, yet discernible darkening of the moon’s lower part.To see this special sky show, a trip to Asia, Europe and Africa is necessary. The central and eastern portion of North America will get a view of the slightly darkened Hunters’ Moon during the early evening hours.
