The Total Lunar Eclipse of 2015 Sep 28 

A lunar eclipse means  when the Moon passes directly behind the Earth into its umbra (shadow). 

An Lunar eclipse  can only occur at Full Moon, and only if the Moon passes through some portion of the Earth’s shadow. The shadow is actually composed of two cone-shaped components, one nested inside the other. The outer or penumbral shadow is a zone where the Earth blocks part but not all of the Sun’s rays from reaching the Moon. In contrast, the inner or umbral shadow is a region where the Earth blocks all direct sunlight from reaching the Moon.
