Animation: How the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Looked

During this penumbral lunar eclipse, the Earth's main shadow did not cover the Moon. As the Earth's shadow (umbra) misses the Moon during a penumbral lunar eclipse, there were no other locations on Earth where the Moon appeared 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.

The maximum part of the eclipse occurs when the Moon is close under the horizon. The best time to view the eclipse in Saint-Denis would be around this time.
Since the Moon is near the horizon at this time, we recommend going to a high point or finding an unobstructed area with free sight to East-northeast for the best view of the eclipse.

The Earth's penumbra ends.
Times are local for Saint-Denis (RET – Reunion Time).

This eclipse is in progress during moonrise or moonset, so only parts of the eclipse are visible in Saint-Denis.

The animation's bottom edge represents an ideal, flat horizon, which is at the same altitude as the observer.
