A partial eclipse of the Moon occurs on Monday 11 March, 2639 UT, with maximum eclipse at 19:10 UT. A tiny bite out of the Moon may be visible at maximum, though just 4% of the Moon will be shadowed in a partial eclipse lasting for 44 minutes and 12 seconds. 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 4 minutes. The partial eclipse lasts for 44 minutes and 12 seconds. Maximum eclipse is at 19:10:02 UT.

During this eclipse the Moon will be at perigee, making it extremely large. At maximum eclipse it will be 0.568° in apparent diameter, which is 7.0% 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.

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.
