Total eclipse of the moon tonight

The current cloudy weather means it is unlikely that tonight’s total eclipse of the moon will be visible throughout the Netherlands, forecasters said on Wednesday.

The eclipse, caused by the earth blocking the sun’s light reaching the moon, will begin at 2.43am. The eclipse will be total after 4am.
