Lunar eclipse Wednesday 15th June

Don't forget that we can see a lunar eclipse tomorrow night. The moon will rise already in eclipse with mid eclipse being 2113h and the moon rising for us around 2145h

So there is only about 15 mins of full eclipse remaining. The moons will then move into the penumbra for another hour or so. This part will be less noticeable as the moon will not be in as dark a shadow.

The best observing plan is just to find somewhere with a low eastern horizon and watch as the moon rises.
