      A penumbral lunar eclipse happens right now out of your window.
      It began at 22:21 CET, the moon entered the penumbra (german: Halbschatten). It is no big event, because the moon will only almost graze the umbra (german: Kernschatten), but at the maximum of the eclipse at 0:47 CET maybe you can see a a more darkly full moon on the right down corner (booaaaahhh bad english).
      At 3:13 CET the moon will leave the penumbra and the astronomical events will be continued with a sun eclipse on March 29th.
