A partial eclipse of the Moon occurred on Saturday 21 February, 1598 UT (11 Feb, 1598 Old Style), with maximum eclipse at 05:33 UT. The Moon was almost covered by the Earth's shadow in a very deep partial eclipse, which lasted 3 hours and 27 minutes. With 99% of the Moon in shadow at maximum eclipse, this was quite a memorable event.

The penumbral eclipse lasted for 5 hours and 55 minutes. The partial eclipse lasted for 3 hours and 27 minutes. Maximum eclipse was at 05:33:28 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.
