A total lunar eclipse took place on December 30, 1982. A shallow total eclipse saw the Moon in relative darkness for 1 hour exactly. The Moon was 18% of its diameter into the Earth's umbral shadow, and should have been significantly darkened. The partial eclipse lasted for 3 hours and 16 minutes in total.[1] This was a supermoon since perigee was on the same day. It also was a blue moon, the second full moon of December for the eastern hemisphere where the previous full moon was on December 1.[2]
