Fourth of July 2020 Will End with a Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse: When and Where You Can See It

A partial penumbral lunar eclipse will also be available to view in North America that same night. In this type of eclipse,  the moon misses the inner, darkest part of Earth’s shadow, and instead it glances the outer, less dark part of the shadow, which will subtly darken a part of the lunar surface.

The eclipse will begin at 11:07 p.m. ET, reaching maximum lighting just before 12:30 a.m. and end at 1:52 a.m, according to Old Farmer’s Almanac.

It will be visible visible from most of North America, except in the northernmost regions of Canada and Alaska.

The next full moon, known as the Sturgeon Moon, is expected to take place on Aug. 3.
