Penumbral or Partial?[edit]

The article contradicts itself by claiming this to be a total penumbral eclipse while also claiming it to be a partial eclipse. The image suggests that it was a partial eclipse. ALK (Talk) 19:27, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

Nasa says penumbral. [1]

Hermit says 'partial: 1988/03/03 16:13 L,P 113 1.117 0.003 0.988 14m00s

Someone added this, apparently from the Hermit data " The partial eclipse lasted just 14 minutes the shortest until December 31, 2009. On September 29, 2042, a partial eclipse of just 0.3% lasting just 12 minutes will be visible." at the top. I removed it. Tom Ruen (talk) 21:32, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
