Entree to Transit of Venus: partial lunar eclipse on tonight (June 4)

Moon
Partial lunar eclipse in Sydney, June 4.

With all the Tranist of Venus excitement which occurs from about 8am June 6 (and then not again until 2117) there’s been little mention of the partial lunar eclipse occuring tonight.

The moon is passing through the eath’s shadow and will be mot affected at 9.03pm.

It’s a beautiful clear night in Sydney so step outside and see our collective shadow on the moon and pray for this mysterious round ball we call home.

Oh, and the Tranist of Venus is June 5,6 and occurs when Venus crosses the sun.
