A Stargazer’s Triple Header: Eclipse, comet, full moon

Friday night will be quite a show: an eclipse (7:43 Eastern Time), a full moon, and a comet (10:30 pm) to light up the night sky. From the report at the Independent:

Friday night will in fact see that comet – a green, shining light followed by a purple trail, known as 45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdušáková – joined by a bright, shining full “snow moon” and a lunar eclipse, all at the same time.

Starting early Friday evening, a penumbral lunar eclipse will begin. That means that the sun, moon and earth all line up and cast a strange effect on the moon.

But the forecast in northern Ohio is cloudy, so here is the astronomy website that all the online reports are linking to if you’d like to watch a live stream (the eclipse and later, the comet):

And if access to the link is slow, it’s probably because the website is overloaded. Over the weekend, I’ll update this with a YouTube link (if there is one), or just try the link after the fact, when the traffic is lighter.
