Tonight's Triple Space-tacular!

posted by Laura -

WATCH THIS: Sky-gazers can catch a triple space-tacular event tonight with a full "snow" moon, a lunar eclipse and then a comet sighting. Tonight (Friday), the full moon will pass into the Earth’s outer shadow, resulting in a partial eclipse. Look for it starting at 5:32 p.m. eastern time. It will last for about four hours. Then, early Saturday morning, a comet named 45P will zoom past our planet.  It will be only 7.7 million miles away, which is closer than these encounters usually come. 

Watch the video above to find out why tonight's full moon is called a full "snow" moon.
