Shown above is the partial lunar eclipse of July 16, 2019, as observed from Paris, France. That’s the Eiffel Tower framing the Moon. The partial entry of the Moon into the Earth’s umbral shadow on this midsummer’s night (Northern Hemisphere) was certainly eye-catching. Although visible during its entirely from much of the Eastern Hemisphere, it could only be seen for a sliver of eastern North America. The duration of this partial eclipse lasted nearly 3 hours (the portion within Earth’s umbra) for viewers in France and much of the rest of Europe.
