A partial eclipse of the Moon occurs on Monday 29 March, 2545 UT, with maximum eclipse at 15:28 UT. A tiny bite out of the Moon may be visible at maximum, though just 9% of the Moon will be shadowed in a partial eclipse lasting for 1 hour and 10 minutes. A shading across the moon from the Earth's penumbral shadow should be visible at maximum eclipse.

The penumbral eclipse lasts for 4 hours and 48 minutes. The partial eclipse lasts for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Maximum eclipse is at 15:28:54 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.
