On 28 November 2012, we saw a penumbral eclipse in many parts of our world. In a complete lunar eclipse the shadow of the Earth covers the Moon and we see dark & almost red Moon, But in the penumbral eclipse the Moon just passes from penumbra of the Earth and we see it dimmer than before the eclipse & we doesn't see the red Moon.
On 28 November 2012 in Tehran, we saw a penumbral eclipse on after the sunset. This picture is composed of two photos & showing to us that eclipse. The left photo is showing the Moon after the eclipse & the right photo is showing the Moon in the eclipse. The difference is apparent!
