Penumbral lunar eclipse

5.6.2020 at 23.15 - 00.10 - Laitila (II)
Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

Olipahan again ... Cloud fiber here, here and there and especially there on the rising side of the moon ... At least not visible to your own eye eclipse, so the value of jurors, helpful. As a result of the trip, I got pretty, summer months. This evening was not wasted, on the contrary.

Penumbral lunar eclipse

Tuomas Salo, Ursa (Helsinki)

I photographed the moon near the horizon and it was stained yellow due to the atmosphere. In another image, a thin cloud came forward, leaving a dark wad on its surface.

Afterwards I found out that there was a half shadow eclipse. I can't stand out from the pictures.

Penumbral lunar eclipse

5.6.2020 at 23.00 - 23.30 - Nakkila (II)
Juha Ojanperä, Porin Karhunvartijat

The moon went into half shadow on the evening of the fifth day of June. When the eclipse was visible, the Moon was rising and was on a low horizon during the eclipse. Personally, I could not detect the half-shadow on the Moon, the Moon had already turned orange in any case when it was low on the horizon and on top of all that there was a thin cloud of clouds in front of the Moon, which made the shadow even more difficult to see.

Penumbral lunar eclipse

Jorma Koski, Ursa (Helsinki)

The lunar eclipse of the Moon was not visible to the eye or in the images, where the clouds disturbed when the Moon finally rose behind the forest, for the strips of clouds faded at first and finally at 11 pm the Moon rose into the clouds, completely covering itself.

Penumbral lunar eclipse

Markku Sirén, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

I have to say the same as in Matti Hel's neighborhood, the moon was visible but I don't say anything about the eclipse. Sadly the clouds came forward, the early evening still looked promising.

Penumbral lunar eclipse

5.6.2020 at 22.35 - 23.55 - Lieto (II)
Matti Helin, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

I bongo mooned, but I don’t say black or share about the eclipse. After 11pm the moon came out from behind a worse cloud curtain, but nonetheless, I didn’t see the shadow.

Penumbral lunar eclipse

5.6.2020 at 22.35 - 00.00 - Järvenpää (II)
Toni Veikkolainen, Keski-Uudenmaan Altair

In the period beginning in July 2018, I had managed to detect one complete solar eclipse, two complete lunar eclipses, one partial lunar eclipse, and one half-eclipse eclipse. As the rainy day turned towards evening, the satellite images strongly showed that the cloud hole was coming from the south and the series of successes could be continued. I drove to Niemennokka and started to tune the observation equipment to a familiar place on the boat shore. The setting sun was still echoing but there were some clouds in a critical direction as well. Finally, after half past eleven, the Moon came out...

Penumbral lunar eclipse

5.6.2020 at 22.30 - 23.20 - Espoo, Toppelundin ranta (II)
Ulla Vornanen

I went to the seashore at about 10:20 p.m. The lukewarm moon figure first stood out at about 10:30 p.m. on the horizon. At that time, it was not yet possible to distinguish the half-shadow eclipse from the fog. The first picture at about 22.45, when the moon had already risen a little higher. Here, too, the shadow of the lower part is still rather faintly visible. Another picture at about 10.55 pm, when the shadow at the bottom is already more visible. The third picture is about 23.05, with apparently a cloud of gauze at the bottom, and no shadow as I looked when I guessed when that dark area ...

Penumbral lunar eclipse

Markku Ruonala

Despite the reasonable conditions, I did not observe the semi-shadow eclipse, and it does not show in the pictures.

Penumbral lunar eclipse

5.6.2020 at 22.30 - 23.05 - Helsinki (II)
Georg Kieninger

Seeing and photographing the lunar eclipse of the moon was perhaps halfway there, as I could not clearly distinguish it with the naked eye, nor could I properly distinguish it from the images. Anyway, I got to watch the beautiful moon rise. Figure 1 is a stack of eleven squares over 30 minutes. Figure 2 was taken at 10.38 pm, Figure 3 at 10.55 pm. The weather was really good, the clouds gave a great extra tone.

Penumbral lunar eclipse

5.6.2020 at 22.25 - 23.10 - Helsinki, Pornaistenniemi (II)
Veikko Mäkelä, Ursa (Helsinki)

During the day, weather forecasts gave some promise that the eclipse could show. The evening was predicted to be ‘mostly clear’. If there were no clouds in the direction of the sea, the thing could succeed. After an evening walk, I took a shower and hurriedly grabbed the camera with its tripods and binoculars and headed to the planned observation site on the Matinkaari bridge a few hundred meters away. At first glance it looked sad. To the south there were low clouds. The haze of the horizon seemed like a layer of clouds that just didn’t separate. I outlined the rising direction of the Moon wi...

Penumbral lunar eclipse

5.6.2020 at 22.10 - 23.05 - Helsinki
Matias Takala, Kuopion Saturnus

My lunar eclipse balance for two years is two complete, one partial and one semi-eclipse. In that sense, today there was no pressure of any kind for observation but I decided to go for the sport. I knew this case was challenging in principle and the sky was half-hearted. I arrived at the observation site well in advance of the rise of the Moon and tuned the observation equipment. Then the wait began. The horizon was so clogged that I thought I would see nothing now. However, the even dimmer disk began to stand out at the point when the eclipse had to be at its deepest. In the end, the moon sto...
