Skywatchers better be prepared today for another chance to witness a penumbral eclipse. Penumbral eclipses happen when the moon passes directly behind the earth. This means the sun, moon, and earth should be exactly aligned or very closely aligned. The shadow of the earth will then be casted on the moon making the penumbral lunar eclipse possible.
Today, October 18, 2013, eclipse starts at 9:53 PM and ends at 1:48 AM UTC. The lucky parts of the world to see it are Europe, West Asia, Africa, East in North America, and East in South America.
