Along with perigee, a total lunar eclipse will occur with this full Moon. Observers on either side of the Atlantic, including western Europe and the eastern seaboard of North America will be able to see the entire eclipse. Observers in Hawaii will only be able to see the last moments of the penumbral eclipse, not significant and not visually observable.
