Partial eclipse of the moon visible

Peak in early hours of Saturday

There's a partial eclipse of the moon this evening (Fri 10th)

It starts around 10.30pm - when the earth's shadow will start to creep across part of the face of our nearest planetary body.

Astronomer Howard Parkin says whilst this eclipse isn't going to be the most spectacular -  conditions are looking good.

The event peaks around 12.45am
