Total Lunar Eclipse - 2018 JUL 27

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Below is a preview of nine phases of the eclipse as projected against an imaginary blue wall. The posted timings are in BST (UT+1). The events will occur at essentially the same times for all locations after adjustments for time zones. The Moon altitudes are for London. The eclipse will not be visible from North America. Photos and descriptions of the eclipse would be welcome additions to this thread.

Good info, shame the start won't be visible and it will be so low for much of it. Worth a look though if clear

I had a great view of the complete Sept 2015 eclipse so in some ways the fact that the the moon will be fully eclipsed when rising adds an extra magic this time around. Timeanddate.com helpfully informs me that this day has been cloudy for my location 91% of the time since 2000...
