Skywatchers will enjoy a rare space triple-header Friday night and early Saturday morning: A "penumbral" lunar eclipse during the full "snow" moon — and the flyby of a comet.
The eclipse will begin around 5:45 p.m. ET (4:45 p.m. CT) - shortly before moonrise - and end at around 9:50 p.m. ET (8:50 p.m. CT). The best viewing time will be around 7:45 p.m. ET (6:45 p.m. CT). You can see all the time information from NASA here.

The snow moon will reach its peak fullness at 7:33 p.m. ET (6:33 p.m. CT).
The best chance for seeing the comet will be around 3 a.m. ET (2 a.m. CT) Saturday morning, when its bright blue-green head and tail will appear in the east.

If you can't see the celestial show from where you are, you can go to www.Slooh.com. The site will be broadcasting live coverage of the full moon starting at 5:30 p.m. Friday, following by comet coverage starting at 10:30 p.m. ET.

BTW: The biggest and best solar eclipse in American history arrives on Aug. 21, 2017. Some think it will be "a rare, mind-blowing cosmic experience," or "a once-in-a-lifetime celestial event" - so mark your calendar, if you don't want to miss it
The total solar eclipse will be visible from coast to coast, according to NASA. It will be the first total eclipse visible only in the USA since the country was founded in 1776. It will also be the first total solar eclipse to sweep across the entire country in 99 years.
