A minor lunar eclipse will provide a treat for skywatchers this week.
Though subtle, this lunar eclipse will be visible on Wednesday morning, reaching peak around 7:47 a.m. EDT (4:47 a.m. PDT).
This event is known as a penumbral lunar eclipse, meaning the moon will move on the outer edge of the Earth’s shadow. Though a dark, crescentlike shape will not appear, a dark, shaded section will be visible for those with clear conditions.
