Full Hunter’s Moon / Penumbral Eclipse, 8:14 a.m.

Recommended Posts

[move]*ON 17 OCTOBER 2005*[/move]

Having brought in the crops under the September Harvest Moon, farmers now become hunters in the all-night illumination of the Harvest Moon. A predawn partial eclipse is poorly timed for most North American observers. The early, penumbral phase, beginning at 5:51 a.m. EDT, darkens the Moon too little to be easily noticed, and the partial phase doesn’t begin until 7:34 a.m. West Coast observers, as well as those in Alaska, Hawaii, Eastern Asia and Australia, have a better chance. At maximum eclipse (8:03 a.m.), less than 7 percent of the Moon’s surface will be obscured by Earth’s inner and darker umbral shadow. The partial phase over at about 8:33 a.m.)
