April 26, 2013 Subtle Partial Lunar Eclipse

On the early morning of April 26, 2013 ,  there was a very subtle partial lunar eclipse that was visible here in the Philippines as well as whole of Europe, Africa and Asia. The Earth's umbral (dark) shadow only cover less than 1.5% of the Moon's northern surface area but it was totally immersed on the penumbral (light) shadow nevertheless.  Penumbral eclipse will start at around 2:04am with umbral eclipse starting at around 3:54am.  Maximum eclipse will occur at around 4:09am with about 1.5& obscuration. Then umbral eclipse  ended at around 4:21am.  Penumbral eclipse  ends at around 6:11am but Moonset occured at around 5:40am thus ending the eclipse before penumbral eclipse ends.  Below are 2 composite parts of the eclipse taken by ALP President James Kevin Ty & VP Jett Aguilar.
