A partial lunar eclipse will take place on August 7, 2017, the second of two lunar eclipses in 2017. The Moon will only be slightly covered by the Earth's umbral shadow at maximum eclipse.

This will precede by 14 days the total solar eclipse of August 21, 2017, which will be the first total solar eclipse visible in the contiguous United States in 38 years.[note 1]

Visibility[edit]

It will be visible over eastern Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.
