A partial eclipse of the Moon occurred on Saturday 7 August, 1683 UT (28 Jul, 1683 Old Style), with maximum eclipse at 06:48 UT. A tiny bite out of the Moon may have been visible at maximum, though just 9% of the Moon was shadowed in a partial eclipse which lasted for 1 hour and 14 minutes. A shading across the moon from the Earth's penumbral shadow should have been visible at maximum eclipse.

The penumbral eclipse lasted for 4 hours and 56 minutes. The partial eclipse lasted for 1 hour and 14 minutes. Maximum eclipse was at 06:48:41 UT.

During this eclipse the Moon was just 3 days before apogee, making it fairly small. At maximum eclipse it was 0.503° in apparent diameter, which is 5.2% smaller than average. The statistics page has information on the ranges of the sizes of the Sun and Moon.

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.

are in the TDT timescale.

The Sun and Moon distances are shown in km, and as a percentage of their minimum - maximum distances; hence 0% is the closest possible (Earth's perihelion, or the Moon's closest possible perigee) and 100% is the farthest (aphelion, the farthest apogee). The statistics page has information on the ranges of sizes of the Sun and Moon.
