|11:07 pm Sat, Jul 4||Penumbral Eclipse begins. The Earth’s penumbra starts touching the Moon’s face.||149°||47.4°|
|12:29 am Sun, Jul 5||Maximum Eclipse. Moon is closest to the center of the shadow.||176°||53.2°|

During this penumbral lunar eclipse, the Earth’s main shadow does 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.
