The full moon this month coincides with a partial lunar eclipse. For observers in the UK the eclipse will be in progress at moonrise. The view might be rather like the picture above which I took during the latter stages of an eclipse in 2011.
Here is the timeline for this eclipse. Moonrise refers to Northumberland. Times for the rest of the UK will differ by several minutes. Times for the various stages of the eclipse are true everywhere!
By 10.30pm the moon will be as deep in the shadow as it will get during this eclipse.
The moon is passing south of the shadow axis. Here's how SkyTools 3 shows the path of the moon through the umbral and penumbral shadows:
An observer standing at the centre of the Earth facing side of the moon would see a total solar eclipse (just about) at maximum eclipse.
Everyone on this hemisphere of the Earth will see some or all of the eclipse: all of Africa, the Middle East, central and southern Europe, southern Asia, parts of western Australia, Antarctica and the east coast of South America. The geometry favours observers in the southern hemisphere. This moon is among the stars of Sagittarius - a part of the sky roughly where the Sun is in January.
The moon steadily departs the Earth's shadow after mid-eclipse. Most casual observers will see the eclipse ending at exactly midnight. The Earth’s shadow consists of a dark inner region (the umbra) and lighter outer region (the penumbra). After midnight the moon is still within the penumbra but the degree of darkening is difficult to discern. The eclipse is truly over by 1.20am.
The next four lunar eclipses visible from UK are penumbral eclipses - a lot less dramatic than partial or total lunar eclipses. In 2021 we'll see another partial lunar eclipse. In 2022 there'll be a total lunar eclipse visible from the UK.
