Skywatchers in Maryland and across the Northeast will get a glimpse of a partial lunar eclipse tonight as the Full Harvest Moon rises. It will be most visible at about 7:50 p.m., which is just 12 minutes after the moon reaches its "full" stage, at 7:38 p.m. The moon will actually spend about 4 hours partially behind the edge of Earth's shadow. To see the eclipse, you can look directly at the moon, unlike in a solar eclipse. But this one could be difficult to see because it's only a partial eclipse.

Last season, Towson compiled a 7-4 record and captured a share of the Colonial Athletic Association championship despite ranking 85th in the Football Championship Subdivision in turnover margin. This fall, the team has been markedly better in that department. Three games into the campaign, the Tigers are tied for ninth in the nation with a 2.0 turnover margin average. The team has forced eight takeaways while committing just two giveways for a turnover ratio of +6, which is bettered only by a +11 margin shared by South Dakota State and Western Illinois and a +7 owned by Fordham.
