11 months ago

The full moon, the first in 2020, will be held on Friday from 17:45 to 21:04 UT.

This is discussed in the material of the American publication Sciencealert.-

It is reported that the Moon will be 59% under the shadow of the Earth. Scientists call the phenomenon “penumbra eclipse.”

The total duration of the eclipse will be 3 hours 18 minutes and 13 seconds.

Brazil, West Africa, and most of Europe will see the full moon eclipse on Friday night, while the rest of Africa and most of Asia will see a total eclipse. Northeast Asia and New Zealand will be able to observe the end of the eclipse. From the mainland of North America, the eclipse will not be visible.

During a penumbra eclipse, such as expected on Friday, the moon will reflect the outer shadow of the Earth.

The greatest dimming will affect the southern part of the moon.

The moon in the middle of this period can take on a “tea” color instead of the usual light.

Recall that in 2020, four full moons from February to May correspond to this 90% threshold.
