February's full moon will grow a little darker and appear as a deep red. It will be visible everywhere on Earth except Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand and East Asian nations bordering the Pacific. This differs from a total lunar eclipse when a full moon passes within the earth's inner shadow, the umbra. Instead, as the moon moves through the outer part of the Earth's shadow during a penumbral lunar eclipse, the Earth's outer shadow blocks part of the sun's rays from reaching the moon, making it appear slightly darker than usual.
It is also helpful to have a pair of binoculars, or a telescope, when looking for these occurrences in the sky, because it is too faint to see with the naked eye.
Seeing the triple celestial event will depend on local cloud cover.
"The tribes kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to each recurring full moon", the almanac reports.

He added that the methods of paying for the will are still being discussed within the administration. Kelly said the goal for such fast implementation was to cut off any potential threats to the U.S.
The eclipse will begin at 5:45 PM ET and end at 9:50 PM ET. Full moons during this month received the nickname "snow moon" because it's one of the snowiest months. At its closest point tonight, the comet will be 7.4 million miles away, that's 30x the distance from the earth to moon!
Then early Saturday morning, be sure to catch Comet 45P, which will zoom past Earth. You'll have a better opportunity to see it with binoculars or a small telescope.
There will also be a live feed of the comet starting at 7:30 p.m. on February 10. You'll be able to see the eclipse throughout most of eastern South America, eastern Canada, the Atlantic Ocean, Europe, Africa and western Asia. A few hours later, the bright green comet 45P will shoot past the Earth. Those who miss it will have to wait another five years for it to reappear.
Comet 45P will be the most visible a couple of hours after the eclipse and in the predawn hours, so look to the skies again bout 1 a.m. Saturday and find the greenish-blue light with a tail.
