On July 2 there will be a total solar eclipse that can be observed
by the amateur satellite Lunar-OSCAR 94 (a.k.a. LongJiang 2 and
DSLWP-B) from its elliptical orbit around the Moon. Attempts will
be made to image the eclipse, where both the Moon and Earth
should appear in the images.

For details see these blog posts of Dani, EA4GPZ:

Note that LO 94 is expected to crash onto the Moon's surface at
the end of July, ending its mission. Until then you can still track
LO 94 using GMAT and receive its 70 cm downlinks.
