"2005 Oct 17: Partial Lunar Eclipse

The last event of the year is a rather shallow partial eclipse of the Moon. The penumbral phase begins at 09:51 UT, but most observers will not be able to visually detect the shadow until about 10:30 UT A timetable for the major phases of the eclipse is as follows:

Penumbral Eclipse Begins: 09:51:25 UT
Partial Eclipse Begins: 11:33:59 UT
Greatest Eclipse: 12:03:18 UT
Partial Eclipse Ends: 12:32:26 UT
Penumbral Eclipse Ends: 14:15:08 UT

In spite of the fact that the eclipse is so shallow (the Moon's southern limb dips just 2.2 arc-minutes into Earth's dark umbral shadow), the partial phase last nearly one hour. This is due to the grazing geometry of the Moon and umbra

At the instant of greatest eclipse (12:03 UT), the Moon will stand near the zenith for observers in the central Pacific. At that time, the umbral eclipse magnitude will be only 0.068. North Americans will all see the start of the event, but the Moon sets by mid-eclipse for observers east of the Mississippi River and Great Lakes. Further west, the entire event is visible from the Pacific coast provinces and states as well as eastern Asia and Australia. The Moon's path through Earth's shadows as well as a map illustrating worldwide visibility of the event is shown in (Figure 6)"

Think this is when you view the eclipse when the moon is over the sun, that
binoculars are not the right tool to view the phenomenon.
