A “semi-shadow” eclipse of the Moon in several regions of the world (photos)


Astronomy fans can expect, on Monday night, to witness a semi-shadow eclipse of the Moon, which appears in parts of North America and South America.

And a lunar eclipse can only happen while it’s full.

The semi-shadow eclipse differs from the total eclipse, and it occurs when the moon enters the earth’s shadow or outer shadow, which affects its color and its reflection to the sun’s rays.

It is the last of this year’s penumbra eclipse, and it will be visible in North America, South America, Australia and parts of Asia.

About 85 percent of the moon’s area will enter the shadow region during the peak or mid-eclipse, and this type of eclipse will be visible, but the best chance to see it may be through a telescope, according to NASA.
