Circumstances: (in local WAST time - UT+8)

Moon enters Penumbra 16:56
Moon Rise 17:31
Moon enters Umbra 18:22
Middle of Eclipse 19:33
Moon leaves Umbra 20:45
Moon leaves Penumbra 22:11

Observation:

I observed this eclipse from my suburban backyard. By approx 17:50 local time the moon had risen over the houses and fence line to the east. By 18:20 it had risen high enough for me to pick up the moon in my telescope and take a few pictures. 

Just before 19:00 the clouds had rolled in and it started to rain so I hauled all my stuff inside. By about 20:30 the skies cleared and I observed the last stages through my binoculars.
