Penumbral lunar eclipse - 5.6.2020 at 22.30 - 5.6.2020 at 23.20 Espoo, Toppelundin ranta Observation number 91086

Visibility II / V

I went to the seashore at about 10:20 p.m. The lukewarm moon figure first stood out at about 10:30 p.m. on the horizon. At that time, it was not yet possible to distinguish the half-shadow eclipse from the fog.

The first picture at about 22.45, when the moon had already risen a little higher. Here, too, the shadow of the lower part is still rather faintly visible.

Another picture at about 10.55 pm, when the shadow at the bottom is already more visible.

The third picture is about 23.05, with apparently a cloud of gauze at the bottom, and no shadow as I looked when I guessed when that dark area lingered like that for a really long time.

Pretty soon after the third picture, small cloud ferries began to migrate in front of the moon and the moon was momentarily almost completely covered.
