The first full moon (opens in new tab) of 2020, known as the Wolf Moon (opens in new tab), dipped through the outer edge of Earth's shadow in a penumbral lunar eclipse (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab) 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.
