Stage 9 @ 4:41 a.m. EDT: 75 percent coverage -Any vestiges of coloration within the umbra should be disappearing now. From here on, as the dark shadow methodically creeps off the moon's disk it should appear black and featureless.
Stage 10 @ 5:33 a.m. EDT: Moon leaves umbra -The dark central shadow clears the moon's upper right hand (northwestern) limb.
Stage 11 @ 5:53 a.m. EDT: Penumbra shadow fades away -As the last, faint shading vanishes off the moon's upper right portion, the visual show comes to an end.
Stage 12: Moon leaves penumbra -The eclipse "officially" ends, as the moon is completely free of the penumbral shadow.
