Full Moon
Full Moon taken 27Aug2007, 90mm f/12 APO and Canon 20Da
Full Moon will occur today at 04:46HST.

A penumbral lunar eclipse will be visible from western North America, across the Pacific to much of Asia. This is a fairly minor eclipse, with the Moon passing through the outer penumbral shadow of the Earth. A careful observer will note the light of the full Moon dimmed. As the Moon will not enter the darker umbral shadow the effects of this eclipse will not be obvious.
