Everything to Know About July's Full Buck Moon — the First Full Moon of Summer

The world is about to be blessed by one of the most remarkable sights in the sky. It is the last eclipse of any kind of the year that will be visible from Prague. The next penumbral eclipse will occur in January 2020 followed by a total lunar eclipse in May 2021.

It will also be special because it falls on the 50th anniversary of NASA's Apollo 11 mission.

A partial lunar eclipse can only occur if several elements come together at the right time: it has to be the night of a full moon, and the sun, earth and moon need to be in the right position.

What time does the lunar eclipse start tonight?

What is a partial lunar eclipse and why does it happen? .

The magnitude of the eclipse, which refers to the maximum percent of the moon's diameter immersed within Earth's umbral shadow, will be 65 percent.

Mid-eclipse is at 10.30pm, when about 60% of the visible surface of the moon will appear red or dark grey.

Wiesberger wins Scottish Open in playoff, his second victory in six starts
Friday saw three leader after 36 holes but the most impressive was Bernd Wiesberger who shot 10-under 61 to reach 14-under 128. It's just going with the flow and things worked out very well - not thinking too much and just keep doing what I'm doing.

Including the word "half" may make it sound like a lesser event, but trust us, it will still be spectacular. It's a 'buck moon'.

The Farmer's Almanac noted that this moon is also seen as the "thunder moon" as there are plenty of thunderstorms that hit early in the summer.

The full moon for the month of July, often referred to as a "Full Buck Moon", will be visible across North America Tuesday night if skies are clear.

For the first time, after 149 years, the Chandra Grahan (lunar eclipse) will coincide with Guru Purnima on 16 July. Colonial American and other traditional North American names are also used.

This will be the last solar eclipse of any sort clearly visible in Central Europe until May 16th, 2022, according to the association. It will be a total lunar eclipse.

The pink bits, yes; the white bits, not so much. Simply go out, look up and enjoy.

Weather permitting, what you see and when you see it will depend on where you live.

United Kingdom watchers will need a clear view of the southeastern and southern horizon in order to spot the low moon during the eclipse.
