By Deane Morrison University of Minnesota The young moon that heralds the arrival of March waxes to a mature full moon on the 14th. That evening, the moon will rise swathed in Earth's penumbra, or light outer shadow. The moon undergoes an eclipse, and is unusual in that the whole moon passes through the penumbra without any part of it touching the umbra, or dark inner shadow. The height of the eclipse occurs at 6:47 p.m. When it does rise, the moon will be subtly shaded, with only its bottom region noticeably darkened.
