Animation: How the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Looked

The total phase of this lunar eclipse was not visible in Honolulu, 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.
