Turning Torso and Lunar Eclipse 2019
Beginning of the July 2019 Lunar Eclipse seen from my hometown of Vedbæk in Denmark.
The skyscraper below the Moon is the Turning Torso in Malmo in Sweden some 36 km away!
It’s Scandinavia’s tallest building with its 190 m and Europes second tallest residential building.
This eclipse was a Partial Lunar Eclipse where part of the Moon passes through the Earth’s “true” shadow; the Umbra.
There are 3 different types of Lunar Eclipses;
Total: where all the Moon passes though Earth’s “true” shadow (the Umbra) – Lunarians (people from the Moon 😉 ) would see a Total Solar Eclipse from anywhere on the Moon.
Partial: Where some of the Moon passes though Earth’s Umbra, and the rest through Earth’s Penumbra – Lunarians in some places would see a Total Solar Eclipse and in other places a Partial Solar Eclipse.
Penumbral: Where some of the Moon passes through Earths Penumbra and the rest doesn’t get eclipsed – Lunarians in some places would see a Partial Solar Eclipse and in other places a normal shining Sun.
