(WXYZ) — The next lunar eclipse visible to the U.S. will be on the 4th of July.

The partial eclipse will begin just after 11pm; or shortly after the fireworks.

Don't expect a bright red moon. This eclipse is only a partial eclipse, so we'll just see a portion (penumbral) of earth's shadow covering a portion of the moon.

Hopefully it's on a warm night without a cloud in sight. Did I mention the 4th of July is on a Saturday this year?

Here's the list of all of the eclipses in 2020:

January 10 - Lunar - not visible from Michigan.
June 5 - Lunar - Not visible from Michigan.
June 21 - Solar - Not visislbe from Michigan.
July 4 - Lunar - Visible from Michigan 11p.m. to 1:50 a.m.
November 30 - Lunar - Visible from Michigan 2:30 a.m. to 6:50 a.m. (This will be the better of the two eclipses from Michigan this year)
December 14 - Total Solar - Not visible from Michigan. Visible from South America.
