Snow Moon, Comet and Lunar Eclipse

This month, the Snow Moon will be sharing the sky with several other celestial events. On Feb. 10, 2017, the night of the full moon, there will also be a penumbral lunar eclipse, which occurs when the Earth, Moon and Sun are imperfectly aligned, causing the Earth to cast its shadow across the Moon — and, the New Year comet is set to appear following the lunar eclipse a few hours later on Friday night into Saturday morning.
