July 27, 2018 will be a big night for sky watchers.
Not only will this night be the nominal peak of the long running Delta Aquariid Meteor Shower, but it also will be shared by other spectacular celestial events.
Yes, a full moon will kind of obstruct your viewing of the shower this week.
There will also be what is considered this century’s longest lunar eclipse occurring on the same night.
Mars will also be at its brightest since 2003.
All of these events should make an interesting and fun night of sky watching.
