A penumbral lunar eclipse will take place on August 29, 2053.
This eclipse is a relatively rare total penumbral lunar eclipse wherein the entire moon passes through the Earth's penumbra without any portion entering the umbra. This eclipse will be the first total penumbral lunar eclipse since the March 2006 lunar eclipse.
This lunar eclipse will be followed by a last quarter moon on September 5, 2053 and also the solar eclipse of September 12, 2053.
The entire eclipse will be visible in most of North America, Central America, and the western half of South America. Part of the eclipse will be visible in the remainder of North and South America, Oceania, far-eastern Asia, western Africa, and far-western Europe.
