Lunar Eclipses in Saros Series 131

This page lists all the lunar eclipses in saros series 131 which are in our database.

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. Note that we only have mapping data for eclipses from year 1 AD, so any eclipses prior to that date will be missing. 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.

10 May, 1427 AD
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.01; Saros 131)
In this extremely marginal eclipse, the Moon barely clipped the edge of the Earth's penumbral shadow. This caused a microscopic darkening of just 1% of the Moon's disc for 29 minutes and 6 seconds, which was essentially impossible to see.
21 May, 1445 AD
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.14; Saros 131)
In this extremely marginal eclipse, the Moon barely clipped the edge of the Earth's penumbral shadow. This caused a microscopic darkening of just 14% of the Moon's disc for 1 hour and 42 minutes, which was essentially impossible to see.
1 Jun, 1463 AD
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.28; Saros 131)
This very subtle penumbral eclipse eclipse was essentially invisible to the naked eye; though it lasted 2 hours and 20 minutes, just 28% of the Moon's disc was in partial shadow (with no part of it in complete shadow).

(penum. mag. 0.41; Saros 131)
This very subtle penumbral eclipse eclipse was essentially invisible to the naked eye; though it lasted 2 hours and 49 minutes, just 41% of the Moon's disc was in partial shadow (with no part of it in complete shadow).
23 Jun, 1499 AD
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.55; Saros 131)

3 Jul, 1517 AD
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.69; Saros 131)
This subtle penumbral eclipse eclipse may have been visible to a skilled observer at maximum eclipse. 69% of the Moon's disc was partially shaded by the Earth (none of it was in total shadow), which caused a gentle shadow gradient across its disc at maximum; the eclipse as a whole lasted 3 hours and 31 minutes.
14 Jul, 1535 AD
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.82; Saros 131)
At maximum eclipse, 82% of the Moon's disc was partially shaded by the Earth, which caused a slight shadow gradient across its disc; this subtle effect may have been visible to careful observers. No part of the Moon was in complete shadow. The eclipse lasted 3 hours and 47 minutes overall.
25 Jul, 1553 AD
Partial Lunar Eclipse
(umbral mag. 0.00; Saros 131)
