The first full moon of 2020, known as the Wolf Moon, dipped through the outer edge of Earth’s shadow in a penumbral lunar eclipse for observers in the Eastern Hemisphere overnight on Friday and Saturday (Jan. 10-11) and skywatchers across Europe, Asia and Africa soaked in the view. 

Called penumbral (since the moon passed through the Earth’s penumbra), the lunar eclipse was the first of four such eclipses in 2020. Click the arrows to see more photos of the Wolf Moon lunar eclipse here, as seen by photographers (and some Space.com readers) around the world.
