Lunar Eclipses in Saros Series 159

This page lists all the lunar eclipses in saros series 159 which are in our database. Note that the end of this series is not included in our database, so the list below only covers the earlier part of the series.

The following chart shows the position where the Moon is directly overhead at the maximum times of the total (in blue) and partial (in red) lunar eclipses (penumbral eclipses are omitted). Each eclipse will be visible approximately from the half of the Earth centred on that point. Note that we only have mapping data for eclipses from year 1 AD, so any eclipses prior to that date will be missing. Use the zoom controls on the left to zoom in and out; hover over a marker to see the area of visibility and summary information on that eclipse.

Note that eclipse dates are specified relative to UT. You have not selected a timezone for eclipse timings, so all times are shown in UT (essentially GMT).
9 Sep, 2147 AD
max: 23:06 UT
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.01; Saros 159)
In this extremely marginal eclipse, the Moon barely clips the edge of the Earth's penumbral shadow. This will cause a microscopic darkening of just 1% of the Moon's disc for 29 minutes and 36 seconds, which will be essentially impossible to see.
   
20 Sep, 2165 AD
max: 06:59 UT
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.11; Saros 159)
In this extremely marginal eclipse, the Moon barely clips the edge of the Earth's penumbral shadow. This will cause a microscopic darkening of just 11% of the Moon's disc for 1 hour and 27 minutes, which will be essentially impossible to see.
   
1 Oct, 2183 AD
max: 14:58 UT
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.19; Saros 159)
In this extremely marginal eclipse, the Moon barely clips the edge of the Earth's penumbral shadow. This will cause a microscopic darkening of just 19% of the Moon's disc for 1 hour and 56 minutes, which will be essentially impossible to see.
