Friday night lights: eclipse, comet and full moon

This Friday night and early Saturday morning will be a sky-watchers favorite. Expect a “penumbral” lunar eclipse during the full “snow” moon — and the flyby of a comet. NASA said the exact moment of the penumbral eclipse is 7:43 p.m. ET.

A few hours after the eclipse, Comet 45P, will make its closest approach to Earth, to the east around 3 a.m. Saturday morning. It will be visible in various points of the night sky until the end of February, according to NASA.
