|Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
October 18–19, 2013
The moon perceptibly dimmed as the moon passed through the Earth's northern penumbral shadow
|Series (and member)||117 (52 of 72)|
|P4||1:52:05 (Oct 19)|
A penumbral lunar eclipse took place on October 18–19, 2013, the last of three lunar eclipses in 2013.
It was visible from the Americas (for the end), Europe, Africa, and most of Asia (the beginning of the eclipse was visible in east Asia). The western part of the Philippines (including western Luzon and Palawan) could see the penumbral eclipse at moonset.
This eclipse is the one of four lunar eclipses in a short-lived series at the descending node of the moon's orbit.
The lunar year series repeats after 12 lunations or 354 days (Shifting back about 10 days in sequential years). Because of the date shift, the Earth's shadow will be about 11 degrees west in sequential events.
