Did you see it? A penumbral lunar eclipse was visible in Dar on Friday night.
This type of lunar eclipse is easy to miss — but look carefully — one side of the moon is slightly darker than the other.
A penumbral lunar eclipse happens when the sun, earth and moon are imperfectly aligned during a full moon.
Some of the sun’s light is then blocked from reaching the moon by the earth’s outer shadow – the penumbra.
The next penumbral lunar eclipse visible in Dar will take place in the early morning hours of February 11, 2017.
