The first full moon for 2020 has arrived today and is not alone in being eclipsed. In particular, the "full moon of the wolf", as it is known, is associated with a parasitic eclipse of the moon and is also visible from Greece. In a parasitic eclipse, the full moon enters the shadow of the earth's parasite, causing the Moon to partially darken, but not completely, as in a normal eclipse, when the moon enters the inner shadow of our planet.
The phenomenon will last about four hours, and its peak will be around ten hours in Greece on Friday night. The moon will change slightly from white to slightly yellowish and almost 90% of its disk will be covered by the Earth's coast.
In total, in 2020 there will be four lunar eclipses, all offshore. Eclipses of this kind, however, are difficult to see with the naked eye.
