This catalog has a page for every lunar eclipse from 2000 BC to 3000 AD, 12,064 in all, shown in groups of 20 years at a time. You can go to any eclipse by selecting the milennium, century and 20-year period from the navigation tabs above; then click on an eclipse's date in the list below to to go its page.

You can see the solar eclipses or the combined eclipse catalog by clicking "Solar Eclipses" or "All Eclipses" in the top-right tabs.

Lunar Eclipses, 0001–0020 AD

The following chart shows the position where the Moon is directly overhead at the maximum times of the total (in blue) and partial (in red) lunar eclipses (penumbral eclipses are omitted). Each eclipse will be visible approximately from the half of the Earth centred on that point. Use the zoom controls on the left to zoom in and out; hover over a marker to see the area of visibility and summary information on that eclipse.

Note that eclipse dates are specified relative to UT. You have not selected a timezone for eclipse timings, so all times are shown in UT (essentially GMT).
24 Jun, 0001 AD
max: 09:13 UT
Partial Lunar Eclipse
(umbral mag. 0.06; Saros 78)
A tiny bite out of the Moon may have been visible at maximum, though just 6% of the Moon was shadowed in a partial eclipse which lasted for 57 minutes and 54 seconds. A shading across the moon from the Earth's penumbral shadow should have been visible at maximum eclipse.
19 Nov, 0001 AD
max: 16:36 UT
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.34; Saros 45)
This very subtle penumbral eclipse eclipse was essentially invisible to the naked eye; though it lasted 2 hours and 43 minutes, just 34% of the Moon's disc was in partial shadow (with no part of it in complete shadow).
19 Dec, 0001 AD
max: 05:26 UT
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.29; Saros 83)
This very subtle penumbral eclipse eclipse was essentially invisible to the naked eye; though it lasted 2 hours and 24 minutes, just 29% of the Moon's disc was in partial shadow (with no part of it in complete shadow).
15 May, 0002 AD
max: 04:29 UT
Partial Lunar Eclipse
(umbral mag. 0.08; Saros 50)
A tiny bite out of the Moon may have been visible at maximum, though just 8% of the Moon was shadowed in a partial eclipse which lasted for 1 hour and 4 minutes. A shading across the moon from the Earth's penumbral shadow should have been visible at maximum eclipse.
8 Nov, 0002 AD
max: 22:43 UT
Partial Lunar Eclipse
(umbral mag. 0.46; Saros 55)

4 May, 0003 AD
max: 19:27 UT
Total Lunar Eclipse
(umbral mag. 1.53; Saros 60)
