This page lists all the lunar eclipses in saros series 138 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.

This subtle penumbral eclipse eclipse may have been visible to a skilled observer at maximum eclipse. 64% 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 34 minutes.
This subtle penumbral eclipse eclipse may have been visible to a skilled observer at maximum eclipse. 75% 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 51 minutes.
At maximum eclipse, 87% 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 4 hours and 7 minutes overall.
In a rare total penumbral eclipse, the entire Moon was partially shaded by the Earth (though none of it was in complete shadow), and the shading across the Moon should have been quite visible at maximum eclipse. The penumbral phase lasted for 4 hours and 22 minutes in all, though for most of it, the eclipse was extremely difficult or impossible to see.
