Lunar Eclipses

The following diagrams illustrate all the lunar eclipses visible from Reading through the year 2015. Each diagram, along with its corresponding date and time, represents the eclipse maximum. The Moon is the small yellow circle, and the Earth’s umbra and penumbra are represented by the large grey circles. A total eclipse occurs when the Moon is wholly within the umbra at maximum eclipse. Penumbral eclipses are not shown.

For a few of the eclipses the maximum eclipse occurs after moonset or before moonrise, the diagram then shows the eclipse at the moment of moonset or moonrise.
