Total Eclipse of the Moon!

Maj 26, 2021@11:45 am – 2:53 pm Europe/Warsaw Strefa czasowa

It’s been a while! The last lunar eclipse was in 2019. The Earth’s shadow will completely cover the Moon.

The Moon will barely edge into total eclipse for just 14 minutes and 30 seconds. With the Moon just barely inside the Earth’s umbral shadow, the Moon may be quite bright, but even so, this should be worth seeing for observers from the western Americas, the Pacific, Australia, and south-east Asia. The partial eclipse will last for 3 hours and 7 minutes in total. During this eclipse the Moon will be at perigee, making it extremely large. At maximum eclipse it will be 0.567° in apparent diameter, which is 6.7% larger than average.
