A penumbral eclipse of the Moon occurred on 4 April, 0638 UT Old Style, with maximum eclipse at 09:16 UT. This very subtle penumbral eclipse eclipse was essentially invisible to the naked eye; though it lasted 3 hours and 19 minutes, just 54% of the Moon's disc was in partial shadow (with no part of it in complete shadow).

The penumbral eclipse lasted for 3 hours and 19 minutes. Maximum eclipse was at 09:16:42 UT.

Interactive Map

This map shows the visibility of the eclipse at maximum eclipse, when it was visible within the bright area on the map. Note that the map is approximate, and if you were near the edge of the area of visibility, the moon was very close to the horizon and may not have been practically visible.

You can use the zoom controls to zoom in and out, and pan to see areas of interest. The green marker in the centre shows where the Moon will be directly overhead at maximum eclipse.
