Is there also going to be a lunar eclipse during the full moon?

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, the Buck Moon - named after the new antlers seen on young male deer at this time of year - will rise after sunset on Saturday before reaching peak illumination at 12:44 a.m. ET on Sunday.

Unlike a full lunar or solar eclipse, the visual effect of a penumbral eclipse is usually so minimal, it can be hard to notice.

This weekend, sky watchers in the Americas, parts of Europe and much of Africa will witness a partial penumbral lunar eclipse, when the Moon will appear to dim slightly as it passes through the partial shadow of the Earth. The next total lunar eclipse will take place on May 26, 2021.

The eclipse will be the flawless celestial event for those across the United States staying up late after Independence Day fireworks, as long as clouds don't interfere.

As the eclipse takes place, the penumbra will cause a shadow to fall on the surface of the moon, meaning an area of it may go dark. To see the whole process on the website of the project "Virtual telescope". Usually, the occurrence of an eclipse is observed in pair, either a solar eclipse is followed by a Lunar Eclipse or vice versa.

But here in the United Kingdom, it's likely to be much trickier to catch a glimpse of.

The three will be bunched together all night long with the trio rising in the southeasterly sky around 10 p.m. local time.

The eclipse will not be visible in the northernmost regions of Canada and all of Alaska.

A lunar eclipse will fill the sky in N. America on Saturday, creating one of the top astronomical events of the month.
