A partial lunar eclipse about to take place will appear magnified in the US by an effect known as the "moon illusion".
The eclipse will begin 1017 GMT when the Moon enters the shadow of Earth.
Because of the timing, it will not be visible from the UK or Europe.
But in many parts of the US and Canada, the eclipse will appear larger because it occurs while the Moon is so close to the horizon.
According to Nasa, low-hanging Moons look "unnaturally large when they beam through trees, buildings and other foreground objects". The reason for this is not understood.

*heyJude hopes to see pics of the eclipse.
Second thought, isn't there another eclipse soon, in July? I might be wrong.
