Partial lunar eclipse. View of a partial lunar eclipse. Such an eclipse is caused by the partial entry of the moon into the cone of the shadow cast by the Earth. During a lunar eclipse the moon does not generally disappear, even during a total lunar eclipse. It is still visible due to the sunlight refracted onto its surface by the Earth's atmosphere.
