April 25, 2013 Lunar Eclipse

by on Apr.30, 2013, under Lunar Eclipse

The first of three lunar eclipses in 2013, a┬ápartial lunar eclipse in Scorpio took place on April 25, 2013. Only a tiny sliver (about 1%) of the Moon was covered by the Earth’s umbral shadow at maximum eclipse, but the entire northern half of the Moon was darkened from being inside the penumbral shadow. This was the second shortest partial eclipse of the Moon for the 21st century, lasting 27 minutes.

In the future almost 30 years from now, on September 29, 2042, a partial eclipse of just 0.3% lasting just 12 minutes will be visible.
