this is my last shot of the eclipsed moon before the clouds covered it up about 30 minutes before maximum. it can be seen even by eyes, not easily but you could if you knew its there. image is edited in photoshop CC to enhance shadow. you can see the fainter parts of shadow (fainter grey region) gradualy reaching farther down to the center of the moon.
