Partial Lunar Eclipse - 2019 JUL 16-17

Recommended Posts

A Partial Lunar Eclipse will be seen by many observers with clear skies outside of North America during the night of 2019 JUL 16-17. At maximum eclipse, 65% of the Moon’s diameter will be covered by the Earth’s umbra (dark inner shadow).

Below is my preview graphic for the eclipse as seen against an imaginary blue wall to make the shadow fully apparent. The predicted event timings are in BST (UT+1), but will occur at essentially the same real time for all observers experiencing nighttime. The depicted orientation and Moon altitudes are for an observer in London.

Photos and descriptions of the eclipse would be welcome additions to this thread.
