Photograph By Mr.Deepak Joshee.

The total eclipse of the Moon on April 3-4, 1996, was widely visible from northeastern North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and western Asia. Suhas P. Gurjar, observing from Pune, India, captured the Moon's entry into the umbral shadow at 22:21 Universal Time, signaling the start of the partial phase. Gurjar used a 1,000-millimeter telephoto lens at f/10 and Kodak Profoto II 100 film. In this 1/15-second exposure the inner part of the penumbra appears much darker than it did to the naked eye. North is up.
