The shadow usually has three distinct parts called the umbra, penumbra, and antumbra, the terms most commonly used in reference to the shadows cast by celestial bodies. The terms can also be used to describe the levels of darkness in sunspots. The umbra (Latin for “shadow”) is the innermost, darkest part of the shadow. The penumbra (“almost shadow”, from the Latin) is the lighter part of the shadow, where part of the light source “leaks” around the body, casting the shadow. The antumbra phenomenon is experienced when the object casting the shadow is far enough away from the viewer that it appears smaller than the light source, with an annular ring around it. When the eye is in the shadow cast by an object that has light passing around it, the eye is in antumbra.
