2017 Lunar Eclipse

 

By Jordan Price

Friday nights are usually pretty special, but one with a lunar eclipse makes this Friday  even more special.  This event occurred on February 10. The penumbral lunar eclipse, as it’s called, should be easily visible from much of the world. The comet will fly past Earth, coming within 7.4 million miles, this may seem far, but it is the closest one that will come in the next 30 years. The comet appeared in the western sky, in the constellation Hercules. Binoculars and telescopes will help in the search, but at its closest approach, it might even be visible with the naked eye. If you did not see the lunar eclipse then, here is another look at it.
