Eclipse visible in Amsterdam – May 5, 2023 — Penumbral Lunar Eclipse

The animation shows approximately what the eclipse looks like from the night side of earth.

During this penumbral lunar eclipse, the Earth's main shadow do not cover the Moon. As the Earth's shadow (umbra) misses the Moon during a penumbral lunar eclipse, there are no other locations on Earth where the Moon appears partially or totally eclipsed during this event.

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.
