Lunar Eclipse on July 5 marked the last eclipse of the current cycle that saw a lunar eclipse on June 5 as well as the historic Solar Eclipse on June 21. The Eclipse today was a 'buck moon' eclipse and was visible from several major cities across the world. The Eclipse on July 5 was partial because only part of the moon dipped into the penumbra.
It was a pretty awesome way to end this Independence Day by seeing a partial lunar eclipse. Maybe the penumbra wasn’t as spectacular as fireworks, but it’s still cool! #science #LunarEclipse @NASA pic.twitter.com/F9OVw0MHwx— Mr. Wells (@MrWellsScience) July 5, 2020

Night setting on the Samsung is great! Definitely picked up some cool stuff. Saturn and Jupiter are on the left of the moon and the light reflection looks like the moons trajectory! #4thofJuly2020 #LunarEclipse pic.twitter.com/9jFSa318A6— Jim Goodspeed (@JimGoodspeed) July 5, 2020

Called the Buck, Hay, or Thunder⛈️ Moon, this full Moon is also a penumbral lunar eclipse! In the Americas, you might see a slight darkening as 30% of the Moon passes through the outer part of Earth's shadow. ☀️🌎🌕 pic.twitter.com/KfP09t0CQS
