Three rare natural phenomenons are visible this Friday night in the night sky: a full moon, lunar eclipse, and a comet. All three are said to be visible this Friday night from most of North America according to news reports. The lunar eclipse will be most visible for us at the moon rise, or early in the night. You can see the full moon most of the night, except for when the eclipse is happening.

You will have a harder time seeing the comet until around midnight.  It is called comet 45P and it is closest to earth this Friday at a distance of 7.4 million miles from us. It's location will be just above the constellation Hercules and you will need some binoculars to see it.
