Lightbulb Triple treat: Eclipse, Comet, & Full moon- FRIDAY

Lots of cosmic movement in the skies this week. If your eyes are as bad as mine, you may want to get your binoculars and telescopes on. Look at the skies this weekend, starting Friday. For your happy astrologers, the energy will be influenced by LEO.









Full "snow" moon


Quote:
As required during any lunar eclipse, the moon will be full Friday night. And this month it's nicknamed the "snow" moon.

According to the Farmers' Almanac, full moon names date back to Native Americans in the northern and eastern U.S. Each full moon has its own name.

"The tribes kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to each recurring full moon," the almanac reports. "Their names were applied to the entire month in which each occurred."

Calling February's full moon the "snow" moon is right on target: On average, February is the USA's snowiest month, according to data from the National Weather Service.


Comet 45P


Quote:
A few hours after the eclipse, Comet 45P, which has been visible after sunset for the past two months through binoculars and telescopes, makes its closest approach to Earth, when it will be "only" 7.4 million miles away, NASA said.

Look to the east around 3 a.m. Saturday morning, where it will be visible in the sky in the constellation Hercules. Binoculars or a telescope could be helpful. Watch for a bright blue-green "head" with a tail.

It will be visible in various points of the night sky until the end of February, according to NASA. If you miss it, don't worry: It will return

Yeah thanks, and fingers crossed the sky will be clear enough here. Although I'll probably have to get up before dawn and take a walk outside as the comet can only be seen from the opposite side of the block.
I get the moon in my sitting room window most times of the year.

Bummed theres rain/clouds here. Lunar eclipse is much cooler than a solar... Think of it, its the shadow of millions of species and billions of humans all in a small circle...
