Penumbral Lunar Eclipse in Pittsburgh: October 18, 2013
Tonight (October 18, 2013) around 5:53 PM and lasting until 9:53 PM, the moon will begin going through what’s known as a Penumbral Eclipse. Visibility of the lunar eclipse will be limited in Pittsburgh, PA, but you might be able to catch the moon at maximum eclipse and while the penumbral eclipse is ending as the moon is under the horizon in Pittsburgh for part of the eclipse duration. It will be daylight in Pittsburgh for the first portion of the eclipse, so visibility will be limited. But once the sun goes down in the Burgh tonight, look for the moon.
