A total eclipse of the Moon occurred on 17 October, 1529 UT Old Style, with maximum eclipse at 07:06 UT. The Moon barely edged into total eclipse for a very brief 1 minute and 42 seconds. With the Moon just barely inside the Earth's umbral shadow, the Moon may have been quite bright, but even so, this should have been worth seeing. The partial eclipse lasted for 3 hours and 6 minutes in total.

The penumbral eclipse lasted for 5 hours and 3 minutes. The partial eclipse lasted for 3 hours and 6 minutes. The total eclipse lasted for 1 minute and 42 seconds. Maximum eclipse was at 07:06:45 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.
