Issued at:

10 February – Will the skies be clear to see Friday's triple celestial event where you are? Check your local weather forecast.

Snow moon

February’s full moon is named the Snow moon, because in the US this is traditionally the snowiest time of year.

Penumbral lunar eclipse

This year’s Snow moon will coincide with a penumbral lunar eclipse, so that it is almost completely submerged in shade as the Earth comes between the sun and the moon.

A penumbral eclipse is when the moon crosses a peripheral region of the Earth’s shadow. Usually a faint shadow will form on the moon’s surface, and the moon will appear less bright. However February’s penumbral eclipse is unusual, because most of the moon's face will cross the Earth's shadow, making it appear much darker.

The best time to view the event will be mid-eclipse at 12.45am, though the eclipse will begin at 10.34pm on Friday and end at 2.53am on Saturday morning.

New Year comet

The New Year comet has been visible around the world since December, but on Friday it will make its closest approach to Earth, reaching 7.4 million miles from Earth. This will be its closest approach to Earth since 2011, and we won’t see it again until 2022. Look out for the comet from midnight on Friday - though you will probably need binoculars or a telescope to view it.

Check the cloud cover and your local weather forecast to find out if you’ll be able to see these events on Friday.
