January 11, 2020 Penumbral Lunar Eclipse

On January 11, 2020, there will be a penumbral lunar eclipse that will be visible in the Philippines. Unfortunately, the umbral path of the Earth Shadow won't touch any of the Moon area thus at maximum penumbra eclipse at 03:10am PST, only slight shading (maybe up to 1/3 or 1/4 of the southern limb will be noticeable only thus making this eclipse more of a dull visual event and more of photographic opportunity to see the slight shading in the southern limb of the Moon. Out of the 3 penumbral lunar eclipse that are visible in the Philippines, this is still the best one with the November 30 with 83% penumbral magnitude coming in next and the June 6 the worst one with 57% penumbral magnitude. Below are the circumstances of the eclipse Moon enters penumbra : 01:07:44 am Maximum penumbra (90%) : 03:10:01am Moon exits penumbra : 05:12:24 am
