Australians watching the sky later this month will be treated to a partial lunar eclipse when the shadow of the Earth partially obscures the Moon.
Although the Moon won't be copper-coloured like the last total lunar eclipse in August 2007, there will be a substantial darkening of more than 50 per cent of the Moon.
