A total lunar eclipse when the moon turns red will be visible in the Finnish sky in the early hours of Monday.
The eclipse may, however, remain hidden as the Met Office forecasts cloudy weather for almost the whole country on Sunday night.
The most spectacular stage of the phenomenon, the partial eclipse, will start at 04:07 am. The total eclipse will begin at 05:11 am and will be at its deepest at 05:47 am.
Unlike solar eclipse, the lunar eclipse is safe to view with the naked eye.
The next total lunar eclipse will be visible in the country in 2018. The last time a similar occurrence was witnessed was back in December 2011.
