A partial eclipse of the Moon occurred on 25 April, 2013 AD UT, lasting from 18:03–22:11 UT. A tiny bite out of the Moon may have been visible at maximum, though just 1% of the Moon was shadowed in a partial eclipse which lasted for 27 minutes exactly and was visible from most of Asia, Australia, Europe and Africa. A shading across the moon from the Earth's penumbral shadow should have been visible at maximum eclipse.

The timings of the phases of the eclipse are as follows. You would have been able to see each phase of the eclipse if the Moon was up at the corresponding time as seen from your location. Note that the penumbral phase would have been very difficult to see in practice:

Penumbral eclipse began: 18:03:41 UT
Partial eclipse began: 19:54:04 UT
Maximum eclipse: 20:07:29 UT
Partial eclipse ended: 20:21:04 UT
Penumbral eclipse ended: 22:11:23 UT

Interactive Map

This map shows the visibility of the eclipse. The bright area in the middle saw the whole eclipse; the yellow band to the right saw the start of the eclipse, and the blue band to the left saw the end. Note that the map is approximate, and if you were near the edge of the area of visibility, the moon was very close to the horizon and may not have been practically visible.

You can use the zoom controls to zoom in and out, and pan to see areas of interest. Hover your mouse over the tags to see what stage of the eclipse each circle represents. The green marker in the centre shows where the Moon will be directly overhead at maximum eclipse.
