This Saturday evening, October 28, it’s worth taking a look at the sky. With a little luck and the right weather, a special natural event will be observed there.
Saturday promises to bring an eventful night. On the one hand, the clocks are changed, which is why we can sleep an extra hour on Sunday, and on the other hand, there is a very special natural spectacle to observe: a partial lunar eclipse, provided that the weather conditions are suitable.
