On Monday 7th of July 2017, a partial lunar eclipse was visible at moonrise before the shadow shrank into the penumbral area, and eventually faded. I went up the Jura mountain in France to have a clear view of the full moon rising over the Alps. As cumulus and cumulonimbus were approaching from the west, I only had a 10 minute window to peek at the beautiful and wedged orange disc rise over the snowy peaks of the Alps. Here is a picture I took at 21:00 local time. A 4K video of the event can be viewed here:
