Penultimate Eclipse of the Moon

That sounds better than Penumbral Eclipse of the Moon which is more accurate. I was on my way out the door when I saw and remembered the eclipse so I ran back in for the camera. I was surprised about how easy it was to see this non-umbral eclipse. That said, look to the upper left near the Mare Frigorus area. That looks darker there. I don’t know how close the umbra came tonight but its easy to imagine it’s right there off the edge of the Moon.
