A partial eclipse of the Moon occurs on Saturday 9 April, 2563 UT, with maximum eclipse at 23:04 UT. While technically a partial eclipse, the Moon barely clips the Earth's umbral shadow, which may be very difficult to observe in practice; though a shading across the moon from the Earth's penumbral shadow should be visible at maximum eclipse. The partial eclipse will last for 23 minutes and 42 seconds.

The penumbral eclipse lasts for 4 hours and 41 minutes. The partial eclipse lasts for 23 minutes and 42 seconds. Maximum eclipse is at 23:04:30 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.
