Total lunar eclipse 2015

posted in: News

A total lunar eclipse will occur on September 28, 2015.
This lunar eclipse will be particularly rare, because it is a harvest moon lunar eclipse, taking place also on the day of the closest supermoon of 2015.
The eclipse will be visible over Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Americas.

P1 – Beginning of the penumbral eclipse: 00h 10.4m UT
U1 – Beginning of the partial eclipse: 1h 6.9m UT
U2 – Beginning of the total eclipse: 2h 10.7m UT
Greatest eclipse: 2h 47.1m UT
U3 – End of the total eclipse: 3h 23.5m UT
U4 – End of the partial eclipse: 4h 27.4m UT
P4 – End of the penumbral eclipse: 5h 23.9m UT

The time is in Universal Time (UT). For Canary Islands you have to add 1 hour.
For example, the greatest eclipse from Canary Islands will be visible at 3h 47m.

The next total eclipse will take place in January 2018.
