8:42PM – started to lunar eclipse covering…

9:05PM – eclipsing blood moon transition…

9:50PM to 9:51PM – when the total eclipse happened although there was still unlikely covering at the edge right before the blood moon shadow back to normal rapidly…

Space.com wrote, “The moon passed through the outskirts of the umbra, barely becoming a true total eclipse.Because of the moon’s close proximity to the edge of the Earth’s shadow, some sunlight still illuminated the outer edge of the moon during totality. According to Slooh astronomer Bob Berman, even though the moon was technically submerged in shadow, some sunlight refracted or bent around the edge of the Earth and illuminated the moon’s surface.”

Sydneyobservatory.com.au answered, “How do eclipses occur? Eclipses of the Moon occur when the Moon moves into the shadow of the Earth. There are three kinds of lunar eclipse – penumbral, partial and total. Penumbral eclipses occur when the Moon falls in Earth’s penumbra (the fainter part of our shadow). A partial eclipse occurs when a portion of the Moon is covered by the Earth’s umbra (the darkest part of our shadow), and a total eclipse occurs when the entire Moon is inside the Earth’s umbra. When the Moon is fully immersed in the dark part of the shadow we see a total eclipse of the Moon. At such times the eclipsed Moon usually takes on a dark reddish colour from the light bent or refracted onto the Moon by the Earth’s atmosphere. When the Moon is only partially immersed in the dark part of the shadow we have a partial eclipse.”

Moongiant.com perpertual calendar recorded, “Full moon phase, 100% illumination. It is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun. The Moon will be visible throughout the night sky rising at sunset in the east and setting with the sunrise the next morning. The point at which a Full Moon occurs can be measured down to a fraction of a second. The time it takes between full moons is known as a Synodic month and is 29.530587981 days long.”
