During a total lunar eclipse, the Earth comes in between the Sun and the Moon, stopping the light of the Sun from reaching the Moon and casting a complete shadow over it. During this partial Lunar Eclipse, the moon will travel through the Earth’s outer penumbra before and after partially sweeping through the Earth’s inner dark umbral shadow. Lastly, during a penumbral lunar eclipse, the Moon moves through the outer part of the Earth’s shadow, thus becoming very faint.
