The penumbral lunar eclipse takes place when the earth comes between the sun and the moon, but the three are not in a straight line. In such a situation, the shadow of the earth doesn't fall on a small surface of the moon directly but it is covered by the shadow of the outer part of the earth, called penumbra.
