This page lists all the lunar eclipses in saros series 137 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.
You have not selected a timezone for eclipse timings.
In this virtually non-existant eclipse, the Moon barely clipped the edge of the Earth's penumbral shadow; although the eclipse lasted 23 minutes exactly, it was impossible to see in practice.
In this extremely marginal eclipse, the Moon barely clipped the edge of the Earth's penumbral shadow. This caused a microscopic darkening of just 2% of the Moon's disc for 38 minutes and 24 seconds, which was essentially impossible to see.
In this extremely marginal eclipse, the Moon barely clipped the edge of the Earth's penumbral shadow. This caused a microscopic darkening of just 3% of the Moon's disc for 50 minutes and 54 seconds, which was essentially impossible to see.
In this extremely marginal eclipse, the Moon barely clipped the edge of the Earth's penumbral shadow. This caused a microscopic darkening of just 5% of the Moon's disc for 1 hour and 4 minutes, which was essentially impossible to see.
In this extremely marginal eclipse, the Moon barely clipped the edge of the Earth's penumbral shadow. This caused a microscopic darkening of just 8% of the Moon's disc for 1 hour and 17 minutes, which was essentially impossible to see.
In this extremely marginal eclipse, the Moon barely clipped the edge of the Earth's penumbral shadow. This caused a microscopic darkening of just 11% of the Moon's disc for 1 hour and 32 minutes, which was essentially impossible to see.

This subtle penumbral eclipse eclipse may have been visible to a skilled observer at maximum eclipse. 65% 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 26 minutes.
This subtle penumbral eclipse eclipse may have been visible to a skilled observer at maximum eclipse. 76% 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 40 minutes.
At maximum eclipse, 89% 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 54 minutes overall.
A tiny bite out of the Moon may have been visible at maximum, though just 7% of the Moon was shadowed in a partial eclipse which lasted for 56 minutes and 48 seconds. A shading across the moon from the Earth's penumbral shadow should have been visible at maximum eclipse.

The Moon was almost covered by the Earth's shadow in a very deep partial eclipse, which lasted 3 hours and 6 minutes. With 99% of the Moon in shadow at maximum eclipse, this was quite a memorable event.
A shallow total eclipse saw the Moon in relative darkness for 44 minutes and 24 seconds. The Moon was 9% of its diameter into the Earth's umbral shadow, and should have been significantly darkened. The partial eclipse lasted for 3 hours and 12 minutes in total.

In this extremely marginal eclipse, the Moon barely clips the edge of the Earth's penumbral shadow. This will cause a microscopic darkening of just 17% of the Moon's disc for 2 hours and 3 minutes, which will be essentially impossible to see.
