On Monday, July 7, 2017, a partial lunar eclipse was visible at moonrise before the shadow shrank into the penumbral area, and eventually faded.

"I went up the Jura mountain in France to have a clear view of the full moon rising over the Alps. As cumulus and cumulonimbus were approaching from the west, I only had a 10-minute window to peek at the beautiful and wedged orange disc rise over the snowy peaks of the Alps," Adrien Mauduit, who shot the video below, writes. 

The eclipse was visible from eastern Europe, throughout most of eastern Africa, central Asia, the Indian Ocean, and Australia.

Today's partial lunar eclipse is followed two weeks later by a total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017. Both of them take place during a single eclipse season.
