Penumbral LUNAR Eclipse 10th January 2020

Hi all..  as many know there was a solar eclipse on 26th December 2019, and as they always occur in pairs, here is the 2nd one..   14 days layer..   on Cancer Full moon of 10th January 2020.

I’ve attached the data sheet from NASA created by Fred Espenak.

Here’s the details for those who don’t quite know how to interpret the data:

  • Greatest Eclipse occurs at 19hrs 09 mins  (Universal Time is almost equal to GMT).
  • Penumbral contact (moon goes into Penumbral shadow of Earth so will just have a slight reddish colour change…not totally go dark)  from P1= 17hrs07mins    to  P4= 21hrs12mins.
  • The duration of this penumbral eclipse is 4 hrs 04 minutes.
  • Eclipse visible for all of Europe, all of Asia, and most of Africa (except west Africa and tip of south Africa, as seen from diagram below).

I’ll write about other eclipses in 2020 in another blog post.
