Prelude to the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse: A Partial Lunar Eclipse Occurs Monday

Much of the Eastern Hemisphere will be treated to a partial eclipse of the moon Monday (Aug. 7) — a prelude to the grand spectacle that awaits North Americans exactly two weeks later.

The lunar eclipse will be visible from parts of Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia, and peaks 2:20 p.m. EDT (1820 GMT). Even if you're not in the path of the partial lunar eclipse, Monday will bring a summer full moon to the night sky.
