A partial lunar eclipse was observed at Japan in evening of Jun 4, 2012. That day was the first full moon since the Annular solar eclipse on May 21, I observed the moon in lower southeast sky was eclipsed about 40% after 20:00. Unfortunately it was slightly cloudy, I could appreciate only a dimmed moon during eclipse.
