Although the two meteor showers that will happen during the month are visible here in Brazil.. the lunar eclipse that will happen at the very end of the month will not. But that doesn’t stop him from being seen, either through photos or online broadcasts on the most diverse channels…

But what is a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse? This is when the Moon is overshadowed by the Earth's partial shadow, called penumbra. While the total shadow (umbra) is responsible for reddening the Moon during lunar eclipses, the penumbra only makes the Moon grayer, which can go unnoticed by many. This event will be visible in North America, the Pacific Ocean and Northeast Asia
