It's a penumbral eclipse, which means just some of the light will be blocked by the Earth. It'll look like a somewhat dimmed full moon. The next total lunar eclipse - where you get to see the shadow of the earth cross the moon and it turn red will be in May.

It's July. It will likely be cloudy anyway.

So, there'll be another penumbral eclipse on November 30th.  And before that is a blue moon on Halloween.

Point of clarification: a "blue moon" isn't the second full moon in the month; it's the third full moon in a season with four full moons.

Still, I look forward to the Opening of the Portal to the Elder Gods. And yes, the way this year is going, it will be opened for sure.

Even if that were the right time of eclipse, you'd be two weeks off.
So, just enough time to get released from quarantine. So, you're actually planning farther ahead than the average farker. Good job!

Through many layers of gauze was that video shot? I'm thinking 3 or 4 and a generous smear of vaseline on the lens.

You know there is one guy who scheduled that day to use the Solar Observatory and when he gets there and sits down with his notebooks and coffee and looks through the solarscope he's gonna be like "Oh for fark's sake!"

2019 was damn near 7 months ago! Except that we're dealing with THIS 2020, so it feels more like 7 years ago. Zero hyperbole detected.

My wife demands my moon be eclipsed at all times, mainly because it's white enough to light up Yankee Stadium.

It's a lunar eclipse and unlikely to affect observations of the sun

Penumbral eclipse. Hardly worth the steps to go outside. You most likely won't even notice any difference. Article written by poorly informed person.

Don't even bother, subby. It's 2020, so the thing blocking the moon will be a farking star destroyer.

Trump's so vain, he probably thinks this eclipse is about him. There was a solar eclipse on the Solstice and like that this is just the Sun and the Moon dimming their lights to acknowledge the Greatness of the Chosen One. Besides, doesn't the Moon turn blood red in the Book of the Revelation? Doesn't the Devil drag one third of the stars from the sky when he falls as the Meteor Wormwood, aka "Bitterness"?

Should be be boning up on our omens for Damian's demise?
