Lunar eclipse rises with full moon Friday night

CLEVELAND - Northeast Ohio and other parts of the world may see a unique sight in the night sky Friday.

A lunar eclipse will rise with the full moon Friday night, peaking around 7:50 p.m, according to Jay Reynolds, a research astronomer at Cleveland State University.

The phenomenon is a penumbra eclipse, where the moon will dip partially in the Earth's shadow.

Observers looking at the southern edge of the moon may notice some darkening. The lunar eclipse is expected to be subtle and may be hard to see, Reynolds says.
