Lunar Eclipses in Saros Series 161

This page lists all the lunar eclipses in saros series 161 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).
2 Sep, 2259 AD
max: 14:37 UT
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.01; Saros 161)
In this virtually non-existant eclipse, the Moon barely clips the edge of the Earth's penumbral shadow; although the eclipse will last 30 minutes and 12 seconds, it will be impossible to see in practice.
   
12 Sep, 2277 AD
max: 21:38 UT
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.13; Saros 161)
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 13% of the Moon's disc for 1 hour and 49 minutes, which will be essentially impossible to see.
