Full Moon will occur today at 18:25HST.

A penumbral lunar eclipse will occur, but it is so minor there is little point in trying to observe it. As the NASA eclipse site notes… “With a penumbral eclipse magnitude [6] of 0.0158, just 0.5 arc-minutes of the Moon’s southern limb will pass into Earth’s pale penumbral shadow; such a shallow eclipse is only of academic interest since it will be all but impossible to detect.”
