A penumbral eclipse of the Moon occurs on Thursday 17 June, 2038 UT, lasting from 01:15–04:11 UT. This very subtle penumbral eclipse eclipse will be essentially invisible to the naked eye; though it will last 2 hours and 56 minutes, just 44% of the Moon's disc will be in partial shadow (with no part of it in complete shadow). The full Moon itself will be visible in most of North America, South America, Europe, and Africa.

The timings of the eclipse are as follows. You will be able to see the eclipse if the Moon is up as seen from your location; but note that this penumbral eclipse will be very difficult to see in practice:

Penumbral eclipse begins: 01:15:23 UT
Maximum eclipse: 02:43:38 UT
Penumbral eclipse ends: 04:11:43 UT

During this eclipse the Moon will be just 2 days past perigee, making it fairly large. At maximum eclipse it will be 0.550° in apparent diameter, which is 3.6% larger 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 will be visible within the bright area on the map. Note that the map is approximate, and if you are near the edge of the area of visibility, the moon will be very close to the horizon and may not be 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.

Note that while all dates and times on this site (except where noted) are in UT, which is within a second of civil time, the dates and times shown in NASA's eclipse listingsGSFC Eclipse Web Site

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.
