Lunar eclipse starts around 5am tomorrow morning (Wednesday)

There is something worth waking up for tomorrow morning, and it starts at a much more agreeable hour than those of recent exciting sporting events ...

Just before 5pm there will be a Penumbral Eclipse*, when the earth's penumbra (shadow) moves across the face of the moon, creating a partial lunar eclipse.

* A penumbral eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth, and the Moon are imperfectly aligned. When this happens, the Earth blocks some of the Sun's light from directly reaching the Moon's surface and covers all or part of the Moon with the outer part of its shadow.

The moon will be close to the horizon at that time, so make sure you find somewhere with a clear view to the west-southwest.

The moon will turn red at the height of the shire's view of the eclipse, which will be around 6:44am.

The true maximum point of this eclipse, which is a little later, won't be visible because the moon will already be below the horizon.
