Fireworks displays may be limited this year, but nature is putting on a show tonight.

A lunar eclipse will be visible on the night of July 4 and the morning of July 5, depending on where you're located. The next full moon will be visible early July 5, according to NASA.

CNet reported it can be seen across most of North and South America and parts of southwestern Europe and Africa.

But the eclipse may not be very noticeable to the naked eye, NASA said.

“This will be a partial penumbral eclipse of the Moon, visible from most of North America, but the slight reduction in brightness on part of the Moon will be difficult to notice with the human eye.”

To find out when you can see the eclipse tonight, visit timeanddate.com and enter your city. In Atlanta, the eclipse will be visible starting at 11:07 p.m., according to the website.
