The full moon at the end of July is also a total lunar eclipse. From my home in Northumberland the moon rises near the middle eclipse. This will make things quite interesting!
- Moonrise: 9.12pm
- Sunset: 9.20pm
- Mid-eclipse: 9.21pm
- End of totality: 10.13pm
- Moon leaves umbra: 11.19pm
- Moon leaves penumbra: 12.30am
With sunset occurring within minutes of the totally eclipsed moon rising – I wonder whether I’ll see anything at all at the start. The entire eclipse occurs close to the horizon; the dimming and reddening effects of the atmosphere will also make it interesting!
