RESIDENTS across Redditch and Alcester will be able to see a partial lunar eclipse tonight.
The moon is set to rise around 9.15pm but because it will be low and because of the eclipse it will be so dim it will be hard to see until it gets higher in the sky.
The eclipse will take place between 9.15pm and midnight.
It is thought the peak time to see it will be at 10.30pm when 60 per cent of the moon will be in the Earth’s shadow and the covered section could, depending on atmospheric conditions, turn red.
They outnumber total eclipses by six or seven.
But these events will not always be visible from the United Kingdom.
The last time there were three total eclipses in one year was 1982.
The next total eclipse visible from Europe will not be until 2022 although that may not be visible from the UK.
