Photos from penumbral lunar eclipse 10/1/2020, Lichfield, UK

A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth, and the Moon are imperfectly aligned. When this happens, the Earth blocks some of the Sun’s light from directly reaching the Moon’s surface and covers all or part of the Moon with the outer part of its shadow, also known as the penumbra.

Last night, such an eclipse was visible from the UK.

Below are 2 photos taken at around maximum eclipse @ 19:10 and 19:25 on 10/1/2020.
