Lunar Eclipses in Saros Series 147

This page lists all the lunar eclipses in saros series 147 which are in our database. Note that the end of this series is not included in our database, so the list below only covers the earlier part of the series.

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, so all times are shown in UT (essentially GMT).
2 Jul, 1890 AD
max: 14:08 UT
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.10; Saros 147)
In this extremely marginal eclipse, the Moon barely clipped the edge of the Earth's penumbral shadow. This caused a microscopic darkening of just 10% of the Moon's disc for 1 hour and 25 minutes, which was essentially impossible to see.
13 Jul, 1908 AD
max: 21:33 UT
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.23; Saros 147)
This very subtle penumbral eclipse eclipse was essentially invisible to the naked eye; though it lasted 2 hours and 6 minutes, just 23% of the Moon's disc was in partial shadow (with no part of it in complete shadow).
25 Jul, 1926 AD
max: 04:59 UT
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.35; Saros 147)
This very subtle penumbral eclipse eclipse was essentially invisible to the naked eye; though it lasted 2 hours and 36 minutes, just 35% of the Moon's disc was in partial shadow (with no part of it in complete shadow).
4 Aug, 1944 AD
max: 12:26 UT
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.48; Saros 147)
This very subtle penumbral eclipse eclipse was essentially invisible to the naked eye; though it lasted 2 hours and 59 minutes, just 48% of the Moon's disc was in partial shadow (with no part of it in complete shadow).
15 Aug, 1962 AD
max: 19:56 UT
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.60; Saros 147)
This very subtle penumbral eclipse eclipse was essentially invisible to the naked eye; though it lasted 3 hours and 18 minutes, just 60% of the Moon's disc was in partial shadow (with no part of it in complete shadow).
26 Aug, 1980 AD
max: 03:30 UT
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.71; Saros 147)
This subtle penumbral eclipse eclipse may have been visible to a skilled observer at maximum eclipse. 71% 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.
6 Sep, 1998 AD
max: 11:10 UT
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.81; Saros 147)
This subtle penumbral eclipse eclipse may have been visible to a skilled observer at maximum eclipse. 81% 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 48 minutes.
16 Sep, 2016 AD
16:54–20:53 UT
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.91; Saros 147)
At maximum eclipse, 91% 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 59 minutes overall, and was visible from Europe, Afica, Asia and Australia.
