Penumbral Lunar Eclipse of 9th February 2009
Eclipse from the Limit!
(Partial Solar Eclipse 2011 January 4th)
100 km eastwards, and you'd miss the eclipse entirely.
Two photographs of the eclipse from New Delhi, India, which was almost at the limit of visibility of the eclipse. The maximum obscuration of the eclipse from New Delhi was 0.05% (magnitude 2.7% ). At New Delhi I was able to discern the "bite" with (filtered) naked eye four minutes after First Contact.
The eclipse was quite marred by fog and clouds after the maximum.
I wonder why it got clear right after the eclipse ended? I thought Murphy must have been busy at more important places.

The Shadow of the Earth
10 December 2010 @ Majkhali in the Himalayas
In the centre, the greatest eclipse, and on either side partial eclipse stages. Although the partial stages look at different distances from the mid point, both are exactly 1hr 5min on either side. The difference in distance is because of Moon's horizontal parallax. From Majkhali the moonrise and start of Penumbral Eclipse were timed together.
Moon passed quite close to the edge of Earth's shadow, making it look almost like a Partial Lunar Eclipse.
Annular Solar Eclipse of 21 May 2012
Lake Tanuki near (hidden) Mount Fuji.
This is the partial stage of the eclipse.
