Lunar Eclipse List



This page contains a summary of all eclipses of the Moon occurring between 1999 and 2020.


For every eclipse, I've shown its date, magnitude and Saros series number. The magnitude represents the fraction of the Moon's disc that is obscured by the Earth's umbral shadow; this will always be 1.000 or more for a total eclipse, and for a partial eclipse shows how much of the Moon's face will be in shadow.

Where the date of an eclipse is highlighted, you can click on it to go to a page of details, including maps, for that eclipse. I haven't done this for penumbral eclipses; they're not very interesting.

You might also want to look at my eclipse statistics page, and a searchable database of 5,000 years of solar and lunar eclipses.

(Saros 146, umbral mag. 0.068, max. eclipse 12:03 UT
    partial: 11:34:06 UT to 12:32:25 UT)
A very slender partial lunar eclipse will be visible over east Asia, Australasia, and most of North America. With a magnitude of just 0.068, the partial phase won't be very easy to see, but the shading caused by the penumbral phase should be visible to careful observers.

14 Mar 2006 - Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 113, penumbral mag. 1.056, max. eclipse 23:48 UT
    penumb: 21:21:32 UT on March 14 to 02:13:32 UT on March 15)
A rare total penumbral eclipse of the Moon will be visible over Asia (the beginning of the eclipse); Europe, Africa and west Asia (the whole eclipse); and the Americas barring the Yukon and Alaska (the end of the eclipse). The shading across the Moon should be quite visible at maximum eclipse.

7 Sep 2006 - Partial Lunar Eclipse

    partial: 18:05:03 UT to 19:37:41 UT)
A very slender partial lunar eclipse will be visible over Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australasia. With a magnitude of just 0.190, the partial phase won't be very easy to see; but the shading caused by the penumbral phase should be visible to careful observers.

3 Mar 2007 - Total Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 123, umbral mag. 1.238, max. eclipse 23:21 UT
    total: 22:43:49 UT on March 3 to 23:58:01 UT on March 3)

16 Aug 2008 - Partial Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 138, umbral mag. 0.812, max. eclipse 21:10 UT
    partial: 19:35:45 UT to 22:44:38 UT)
A deep partial lunar eclipse will be visible over most of Asia, Australasia, Europe, Africa, and south America. Although only a partial eclipse, this eclipse should be quite spectacular, as most of the Moon will pass inside the Earth's umbral shadow at maximum eclipse -- the umbral magnitude is 0.81.

9 Feb 2009 - Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 143, penumbral mag. 0.924, max. eclipse 14:38 UT
    penumb: 12:36:50 UT to 16:39:39 UT)
A very deep penumbral eclipse will be visible from eastern Europe and Africa, Asia, and most of North America. As a penumbral eclipse, the effects will be subtle, but the depth of this eclipse should make the shading across the Moon quite visible to the naked eye.

7 Jul 2009 - Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 110, penumbral mag. 0.182, max. eclipse 09:39 UT
    penumb: 08:32:48 UT to 10:44:27 UT)
A shallow penumbral eclipse will technically be visible from the far East, Australia, the Pacific, South America, and most of North America. However, this will be very hard to see with the naked eye.

6 Aug 2009 - Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 148, penumbral mag. 0.428, max. eclipse 00:39 UT
    penumb: 23:01:04 UT on August 5 to 02:17:23 UT on August 6)
A fairly shallow penumbral eclipse will be visible from south-east North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and west Asia. This will be pretty hard to see with the naked eye, however.

31 Dec 2009 - Partial Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 115, umbral mag. 0.082, max. eclipse 19:23 UT
    partial: 18:51:38 UT to 19:53:51 UT)
A very narrow partial lunar eclipse will be visible over most of Asia, Australasia, Europe, and Africa. The partial phase will be quite hard to see with the naked eye, as only a tiny sliver of the Moon will be in the Earth's umbral shadow -- the umbral magnitude is just 0.08. However, the shading of the penumbral phase should be quite visible.

26 Jun 2010 - Partial Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 120, umbral mag. 0.542, max. eclipse 11:38 UT
    partial: 10:16:32 UT to 13:00:19 UT)
A partial lunar eclipse will be visible over eastern Asia, Australasia, the Pacific, and (partially) the Americas. The Moon will be about half covered by the Earth's umbral shadow at maximum eclipse; the umbral magnitude is 0.54.

21 Dec 2010 - Total Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 125, umbral mag. 1.261, max. eclipse 08:17 UT
    total: 07:40:21 UT to 08:53:34 UT)
A total lunar eclipse will be visible over eastern Asia, Australasia, northwestern Europe and Africa, and the Americas. The Moon will be well within the Earth's umbral shadow, in a total eclipse that will last over an hour.

15 Jun 2011 - Total Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 130, umbral mag. 1.705, max. eclipse 20:13 UT
    total: 19:22:11 UT to 21:03:02 UT)
An impressive total eclipse of the Moon will be visible from Europe, Africa, most of Asia, and Australia. The end of the eclipse will be visible from South America. The Moon will be well within the Earth's umbral shadow, in a total eclipse that will last over an hour and a half.

10 Dec 2011 - Total Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 135, umbral mag. 1.111, max. eclipse 14:32 UT
    total: 14:05:40 UT to 14:57:55 UT)
A total eclipse of the Moon will be visible from North America (the beginning of the eclipse); eastern Asia and Australia; and Europe and Africa (the end of the eclipse). This will be a relatively shallow eclipse, with the Moon staying near the edge of the Earth's umbral shadow, in a total eclipse lasting less than an hour; still, it should be an impressive sight.

4 Jun 2012 - Partial Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 140, umbral mag. 0.376, max. eclipse 11:03 UT
    partial: 09:59:24 UT to 12:07:04 UT)
A partial eclipse of the Moon will be visible from the Americas, the Pacific, south-east Asia and Australia. With the Moon less than half covered at total eclipse, this won't be spectacular, but still an interesting event.

28 Nov 2012 - Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 145, penumbral mag. 0.942, max. eclipse 14:33 UT
    penumb: 12:12:33 UT to 16:53:18 UT)
A deep penumbral eclipse of the Moon will be visible from North America (the beginning of the eclipse), Asia and Australia, and most of Europe and Africa (the end of the eclipse). As a penumbral eclipse, this will be subtle, but its depth means that the shading across the Moon should be visible at maximum eclipse.

25 Apr 2013 - Partial Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 112, umbral mag. 0.021, max. eclipse 20:07 UT
    partial: 19:51:42 UT to 20:23:32 UT)
An extremely shallow partial eclipse will be visible from most of Asia, Australia, Europe and Africa. The partial phase will actually be so shallow that it will be very hard to spot; but the shading across the Moon caused by the Earth's penumbral shadow should be quite visible.

25 May 2013 - Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 150, penumbral mag. 0.040, max. eclipse 04:10 UT
    penumb: 03:43:09 UT to 04:37:05 UT)
An extremely shallow penumbral eclipse will be almost impossible to see from the Americas, western Africa, and south-west Europe (and actually impossible to see everywhere else). With only 4% of the Moon's diameter being just very slightly dimmed, I'd stay in bed!

18 Oct 2013 - Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 117, penumbral mag. 0.791, max. eclipse 23:50 UT
    penumb: 21:48:16 UT on October 18 to 01:52:05 UT on October 19)

(Saros 122, umbral mag. 1.296, max. eclipse 07:46 UT
    total: 07:06:21 UT to 08:24:59 UT)

8 Oct 2014 - Total Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 127, umbral mag. 1.172, max. eclipse 10:55 UT
    total: 10:24:33 UT to 11:24:30 UT)
A total eclipse of the Moon will be visible from east Asia and North America, with the beginning of the total eclipse being visible from most of South America.

4 Apr 2015 - Total Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 132, umbral mag. 1.005, max. eclipse 12:00 UT
    total: 11:54:16 UT to 12:06:12 UT)

16 Sep 2016 - Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 147, penumbral mag. 0.933, max. eclipse 18:54 UT
    penumb: 16:52:41 UT to 20:55:57 UT)
A deep penumbral eclipse of the Moon will be visible from Europe, Afica, Asia and Australia. While subtle, this should be visible as a significant shading across the Moon at maximum eclipse.

11 Feb 2017 - Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
(Saros 114, penumbral mag. 1.014, max. eclipse 00:44 UT
    penumb: 22:32:09 UT on February 10 to 02:55:27 UT on February 11)
