Animation: How the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Looked

The total phase of this lunar eclipse was not visible in Mbuji-Mayi, but it could be observed there as a penumbral lunar eclipse. A penumbral lunar eclipse can be a bit hard to see, as the shadowed part is only a little bit fainter than the rest of the Moon.

The maximum part of the eclipse occurs when the Moon is close under the horizon. The best time to view the eclipse in Mbuji-Mayi would be around this time.
