The Penumbral Lunar Eclipse of 2020 January 10th

A penumbral lunar eclipse, the first of four visible in 2020, occurred early in the evening of January 10th, for observers in the British Isles. As this was a penumbral, and not a total or partial lunar eclipse, none of the Moon lay within the Earth’s umbral shadow, which was to the south of the Moon. This image, captured by Paul Sutherland with a handheld lens from Walmer in Kent, shows the mid part of the event, which was at approximately 19h 11m UT.
