Penumbral Eclipse begins The Earth's penumbra start touching the Moon's face.Map direction Southeast 127°
11:22 pm Fri, May 5
Maximum Eclipse Moon is closest to the center of the shadow.Map direction South-southeast 154°
1:31 am Sat, May 6
Penumbral Eclipse ends The Earth's penumbra ends.Map direction South 188°

The curvature of the shadow's path and the apparent rotation of the Moon's disk is due to the Earth's rotation.

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.
