Total Lunar Eclipse - September 28th

Recommended Posts

Greetings my fellow Lunatics,

I bring you here a link to a Pdf. showing when & where a total eclipse of the Moon will be going on up above:

http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/LEplot/LEplot2001/LE2015Sep28T.pdf

Looks to be a good one as it will be visible to a great many location in both the Eastern and Western hemisphere.

Getting my straight-jacket from the cleaners,

Dave

Some info on what to look out for during the eclipse and times of the eclipse from the UK are available here: https://britastro.org/node/6660

This is the first total eclipse visible in its entirety from the UK since early 2008. I remember that one well as it was clear the whole time from my location.

Excellent.  I shall certainly try to see this if the weather plays ball.

Thanks Dave and Jeremy - definitely worth staying up for if the weather looks reasonable. Will have to dust the dslr down :-)

Gonna give it a go whatever the weather unless its a complete right off. As long as there are some gaps there should be some decent viewing/imaging opportunities.

The European weather model (ECMWF) is showing a big fat high pressure system of 1030mb over the UK and Ireland next Sunday night / Mon morning.

The American GFS weather model keeps changing it's mind. It previously had a high pressure system over the UK and Ireland but now shows a low in the Atlantic affecting western areas with the clearest conditions towards the far east.

Still too far away to be sure what the outcome is going to be.
