Lunar eclipse 2019: How to catch a glimpse of this breathtaking event TONIGHT
he event is particularly special for stargazers, as the date coincides with the 50th anniversary of NASA’s Apollo 11 launching on its Moon mission. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth, Sun, and Moon are almost exactly in line and the Moon is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun. The Moon is full, moves into the shadow of the Earth and dims dramatically but usually remains visible, lit by sunlight that passes through the Earth's atmosphere.

The Full Buck Moon & Lunar Eclipse Tell Us To Let Go Of Our Limits

July 16 is an astrologically eventful night, bringing us a full buck moon and partial lunar eclipse. What does that all mean? Let’s break it down. First, each month's full moon has different traditional names. According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, July’s full moon is called the buck moon or thunder moon, because it coincides with the time of year when a buck’s antlers are full grown and thunderstorms are frequent.

IS THERE A FULL MOON TONIGHT? JULY'S FULL BUCK, THUNDER MOON IS THE FIRST OF SUMMER—AND A PARTIAL LUNAR ECLIPSE

Tomorrow, skywatchers are in for a treat because a full moon is set to light up the night.

The full moon in July—which this year takes place on July 16 at 5:38 p.m. EDT—is referred to as the "Thunder Moon" or sometimes the "Full Buck Moon."

Full moons are an astrological phenomenon which occur around once a month when the Earth is positioned between the sun and the moon. In this situation, the face of the moon that we can see is fully lit up by our star, appearing like a perfect circle.

While the term "full moon" technically refers to the specific moment when our natural satellite is directly opposite the sun, it will actually appear full to our eyes for around three days—from Monday until Thursday morning, according to NASA's Solar System Exploration blog.

The name "Thunder Moon" derives from the fact that thunderstorms are frequent in July. Meanwhile, the "Buck Moon" refers to the rapid growth of new antlers that male deer, or bucks, experience around this time.

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac—a reference book which has been published continuously since 1792—the names originate from Native American groups, namely, the Algonquin tribes from the eastern part of the continent.

The Last Lunar Eclipse of 2019 Occurs Tuesday, Just in Time for Apollo 11 Celebrations

Tomorrow (July 16), the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11 to land astronauts on the moon and two weeks after the moon totally eclipsed the sun, it will be the moon's turn to undergo an eclipse of its own. The full moon, in Sagittarius, will pass partway through the southern part of the Earth's shadow resulting in a partial lunar eclipse.

This event favors the Eastern Hemisphere, known colloquially as the "Old World": Africa, Europe and western Asia. Most of South America will see the moon rise already within the Earth's shadow. Conversely, for central and eastern Asia and Australia, the eclipse will still be in progress when the moon sets during the dawn hours of July 17.

Unfortunately, North America will be completely shut out; the eclipse occurs during the daytime with the moon below the horizon.
