Penumbral Lunar Eclipse on the Night of August 7

There is a full moon tomorrow, 7 August, and a penumbral lunar eclipse that will be visible in London. It will be visible as the moon rises and will reach its maximum just after that, at 8.35pm London time. The eclipse will end at 8.50pm.

If the sky is clear, you should be able to see it if you find a high vantage spot with an unobstructed view to east-southeast. It won't be quite as visible as a full eclipse as the shadow over the moon won't be as distinct and even at the maximum won't completely cover the moon. You can find out more here
