A partial eclipse of the Moon occurred on Saturday 18 August, 1663 UT (8 Aug, 1663 Old Style), with maximum eclipse at 20:19 UT. The Moon was almost covered by the Earth's shadow in a very deep partial eclipse, which lasted 3 hours and 19 minutes. With 95% of the Moon in shadow at maximum eclipse, this was quite a memorable event.

The penumbral eclipse lasted for 5 hours and 38 minutes. The partial eclipse lasted for 3 hours and 19 minutes. Maximum eclipse was at 20:19:37 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.
