A partial lunar eclipse will be visible across most parts of the country on Tuesday evening - providing the notorious fickle British weather doesn't spoil the view.
What makes this particular red moon extra special is that it will be taking place exactly 50 years on from when the United States launched their moon landing mission Apollo 11 from Florida on 16 July 1969.
Partial lunar eclipse, as the name suggests, takes place when the shadow of Earth covers only a small part of the Moon and as a result, only a minor section of the Moon appears dark. The little sunlight passing through the earth's atmosphere will light up the moon, turning it a shade red.
It's ideal timing, as we gear up to celebrate 50 years since man first set foot on the moon.
Provided there are clear skies, the eclipse can be seen in the United Kingdom from Moon rise, which begins between 21:00 and 22:00 BST depending on where you are.
A partial lunar eclipse could make the moon appear red. The moon will be in flawless alignment with the sun and Earth on Tuesday, with the moon on the opposite side of the Earth from the sun.
A partial lunar eclipse could be visible from the United Kingdom on Tuesday, 50 years to the day since the U.S. mission to put men on the Moon lifted off.
When the full moon moves into Earth's shadow, it will darken, but it won't disappear.

Dr Morgan Hollis from the Royal Astronomical Society said of Tuesday night's eclipse: "You're looking for anywhere that has a low unobstructed horizon, no tall buildings and trees in the way".
It will be the last lunar eclipse of the year, astrologists say.
The partial eclipse was also visible as far afield as Australia, Africa and much of Asia.
Maximum eclipse is set to take place at 17:30 p.m. EDT-at which point just over half of the Moon will be covered in shadow.
Unlike solar eclipse, lunar eclipse are completely safe to view with the naked eye. In January, the last total eclipse occurred and was dubbed a super blood wolf moon.
Colour changes of partial eclipses were hard to predict, Paul Cox, chief astronomical officer at astronomy broadcast service Slooh, said.
The voyage of course ended four days later when astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first man to step foot on the moon.
