The penumbral phases of the eclipse occur when the moon is only within the penumbra, or the pale outer fringe of Earth's shadow. The weak, pale-gray penumbral shading is detectable only within about 25 minutes of the partial eclipse's beginning or end, depending on sky conditions and how carefully you look. A faint shading or smudge on the moon's disk should become evident for most viewers around UTC, and the last vestige of any faint tarnishing should disappear around UTC.
