On Friday, The world will witness a partial lunar eclipse tonight at 10:45 pm.

A penumbral lunar eclipse is where there is an imperfect alignment between the sun, moon, and the Earth.

According to The Guardian, “The full moon will clip the outer portion of Earth’s shadow, creating a penumbral lunar eclipse. This is much subtler than a total lunar eclipse, in which the moon appears to turn red as it passes through the darkest part of Earth’s shadow, situated right behind our planet.”
