Penumbral Lunar Eclipse - November 28
      #5523081 - 11/16/12 03:39 PM


The Full Moon will become partially immersed in the Earth’s penumbra (gray fringe shadow) on 2012 NOV 28. A graying may be observed on the upper right portion of the Moon as viewed from western North America before dawn.

See my more detailed article and a link to my graphical preview with data at: www.CurtRenz.com/moon

Descriptions and photos of the eclipse would be welcome additions to this thread.

For North Americans, this is principally a West Coast event. The rest of us toward the east can remain in bed.

Looks like I can sleep-in, too. Clouds, again, in "sunny" southern California.

What's going on here, anyway?

Apparently this is why the "Cloudy Nights" forum was created.

Had clear skies in SE Australia - here's my image of the penumbral eclipse.

Cheers -
