A partial eclipse of the Moon occurs on Monday 20 October, 2442 UT, with maximum eclipse at 01:35 UT. The Moon will be almost covered by the Earth's shadow in a very deep partial eclipse, lasting 3 hours and 8 minutes. With 91% of the Moon in shadow at maximum eclipse, this will be quite a memorable event.

The penumbral eclipse lasts for 5 hours and 18 minutes. The partial eclipse lasts for 3 hours and 8 minutes. Maximum eclipse is at 01:35:39 UT.

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.
