18./19. Oct. 2013: Penumbral lunar eclipse

Manfred Rudolf

On 18./19. October 2013, a penumbral lunar eclipse occurred, about 75% of the Moon immersed into the Earth's penumbral shadow.

It can be seen that on the right image which was taken at 23:45 UT, close to the maximum of the eclipse, the southern (lower) part of the Moon is slightly darker compared with the left image which was recorded ca. one hour earlier.
