On July 16th, the full Moon will pass through the shadow of Earth, off center, producing a partial lunar eclipse. This movie created by space artist Larry Koehn shows how 65% of the lunar disk will fall into darkness during the 3 hour eclipse:

Best seen from Africa, the eclipse is maximum at 21:32 UT. Observers in Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia will also witness at least part of the eclipse. North Americans will see none of it--only a normal bright full Moon.
