Get your binoculars ready! A full moon, an eclipse, and a comet will all be passing through the night sky late Friday night and early Saturday morning. 

A "penumbral" eclipse isn't a full lunar eclipse, and is more subtle, but still visible to the human eye. It occurs when the moon moves through the outer part of the Earth's shadow. In North America, this will be most visible at moonrise, at 7:43 p.m.

Tens of thousands of hunters will soon head into Michigan’s woods for the start of firearm deer season in Michigan. State officials expect a slightly larger deer harvest this year.

Hunters face different challenges in different parts of Michigan: not enough deer in the Upper Peninsula, antler-restrictions in northwest Michigan and chronic-wasting disease in central Michigan.

But Drew Youngedyke, with the Michigan United Conservation Clubs, says the moon may also issue. He says experts predict this week’s brighter than normal moon may change the feeding habits of some deer.
