On Wednesday, 2009 August 06, a shallow penumbral eclipse occurs 15 days after the total solar eclipse. The moon's small entry into the earth's penumbral shadow will produce an extremely subtle dimming of the moon's southern edge. Since its magnitude is only 0.402, it will not be visible to the naked eye. The eclipse will be completely visible over Africa and Europe and South America. It could be seen rising over eastern North America and setting over Asia.
