A partial lunar eclipse, or ‘Half Blood’ eclipse, will occur tonight, and the weather forecast looks clear across large parts of the UK.

Have you got ‘moon fatigue’? If so, try to fight it because tonight the moon is going to turn reddish on an auspicious day. This evening’s lunar eclipse is set to be a genuinely odd-looking celestial spectacle.
In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s ‘moon landing week’. Half a century ago today, on 16 July 1969, NASA’s Apollo 11 mission launched the first humans to the lunar surface.
