Full moon eclipse visible this evening

From 11.45pm to 1am there the moon will be completely eclipsed.

The eclipse will start at 10.30pm, and will be complete at 11.45pm. At that point, the earth will be exactly between the sun and the moon.
During the eclipse the moon will not become invisible, it will become orange/red.

It is expected that the sky over Amsterdam will be sufficiently clear to watch the eclipse. Special protection or dark glasses are not needed.
