Penumbral Lunar Eclipse

penumbral lunar eclipse 
Tomorrow we shall witness a penumbral (not full) lunar eclipse. It will be visible in Eastern Europe, Middle East, Western Africa while the Moon is rising, and in North America while the Moon is setting. In places to the east of Iran, the event can be observed all night.

As you may know 2009 is World Astronomy Year and I invite everyone to participate the observation.
