A penumbral eclipse is an eclipse that is kinda…shady.
Which is in a literal sense!
Penumbral eclipse means literally an almost eclipse.
In this case it means that the sun, the earth and the moon are not quite perfectly linearly aligned and thus the moon is completely eclipsed with just the outer shadows from the earth covering the moon.
When the sun, the earth and the moon are in a perfect line, we call that a Total Lunar Eclipse.
You could say that a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse could also be called a Shady Moon.
