Lunar Eclipses in Saros Series 162

This page lists all the lunar eclipses in saros series 162 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).
12 Aug, 2288 AD
max: 20:04 UT
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.09; Saros 162)
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 9% of the Moon's disc for 1 hour and 18 minutes, which will be essentially impossible to see.

max: 03:41 UT
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.21; Saros 162)
This very subtle penumbral eclipse eclipse will be essentially invisible to the naked eye; though it will last 1 hour and 59 minutes, just 21% of the Moon's disc will be in partial shadow (with no part of it in complete shadow).
   
4 Sep, 2324 AD
max: 11:22 UT
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(penum. mag. 0.32; Saros 162)
