July 4 eclipse of the moon will be visible throughout the United States

A new lunar eclipse, which will occur on Independence Day, will be visible in most of America.

On the evening of July 4, the moon will appear darkened as it passes through the shadow of the Earth. A total lunar eclipse, in which the face of the moon becomes a darker silver color, will begin at 11:07 Eastern time, according to Space.com. The “maximum” eclipse will begin almost 30 minutes after midnight on Sunday. In areas west of the Atlantic, this will happen sooner.

On the west coast, an eclipse is likely to be visible only when the moon rises, that is, at 9:45 pm. You can see the whole process on the site of the Virtual Telescope project.
