Full Moon + (almost!) Lunar Eclipse

The Earth’s shadow will just miss the penumbral of the Moon, just. Meaning – we won’t quite see our shadow on the face of the Moon.
Some astrologers are calling this a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse. It is listed in Solar Fire (software) as an Eclipse. But it’s just too far from the Nodes to qualify as an Eclipse, which means we will not see the Earth’s shadow on the face of the Moon. So we are calling it a “minor” Eclipse.
