A partial eclipse of the Moon occurred on 13 December, 1266 UT Old Style, with maximum eclipse at 19:00 UT. The Moon was strikingly shadowed in this deep partial eclipse which lasted 2 hours and 56 minutes, with 80% of the Moon in darkness at maximum.

The penumbral eclipse lasted for 5 hours and 4 minutes. The partial eclipse lasted for 2 hours and 56 minutes. Maximum eclipse was at 19:00:20 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.
