в пятницу вечером луна взойдет в 5:18 по восточно-американскому времени и будет видна до 6:30 утра - что дает достаточно времени чтобы насладиться зрелищем

лунное затмение будет видно в течение 90 минут before mid-eclipse, at 7:44 p.m. (EST) on February 10, before it ends at 9:55 p.m.

North American observers can watch the Moon flirt with Earth’s shadow on the evening of February 10th.

начало затемнения будет заметно с левой стороны луны
No daytime shadow you normally see has a sharp edge. Instead, it’s always surrounded by a fuzzy perimeter — called the penumbra — created because the Sun is not a point source.

Can't see the eclipse? If it's cloudy at your location, or if the eclipsed Moon isn't in view, you can watch vicariously via live webcasts provided by the Virtual Telescope Project and by Slooh.

Рано утром 11 февраля можно будет увидеть комету
The New Year comet began its journey across northern hemisphere skies at the end of last year, but it's set to reach its closest point to Earth in the early hours of February 11.

Named after the astronomers who discovered it in 1948, 45P/Honda – Mrkos – Pajdušáková is a mass of rock, dust, water and ice that should be visible to the naked eye as a small, fuzzy ball just before sunrise.

This periodic comet can be seen from Earth every five and a quarter years, and according to the British Astronomical Association, it "finally rises to a respectable altitude in the morning sky by early February" as it moves north in this month. It's recommended that a telescope is used for the best chance of seeing its blue-green glow.
