7th September 2006: Partial Lunar Eclipse At Moonrise

    Its mark this date in your diary time!

    On the evening of the 7th of September 2006, the full moon will rise partially eclipsed from the UK at about 7.55pm +/- depending how far east you are, the further east you are the earlier the moon will rise. Check your newspaper for moonrise times for you location

    The northern limb of the moon will be in the umbral shadow of the Earth approx about 19% at max.

    At about 8.37pm, the moon leaves the umbral shadow

    At about 9.57pm, the moon leaves the penumbral shadow and the lunar eclipse will be over.

    This full moon also occurs at perigee, so this full moon will be larger than the "average" full moon as it will be at its closest to Earth and as a consequence, it will be brighter than the "average" full moon.

    Also Uranus will be close by to the ENE of the moon

    Thanks Mr Data, for some reason I thought that there were no lunar eclipses visible here till 2007.

    Love Lunar eclipses in early Autumn, hopefully it will be clear

    This is what it will be like at my location

    The moon/sun rises are visible from my house a little later than they actually occur due to Salisbury Plain. I think that evening may be one for going up on the hills. Cheers Mr Data.

    Weather prediction for West Wiltshire on that evening : cloudy :( .

    Quick prayer : Please Lord, I'd like skies as this evening in 48 hours' time, Amen .

    I foresee a huge thick cloud drifting it's way towards Westbury that night! :)

    Haven't been able to take any photos but the eclipse has been very clear. The moon, thanks to the perigee, is much larger and brighter than usual. The surrounding countryside, unpolluted by artificial light, is silver lit with greatly defined black shadows. I've even been able to see rabbit holes and avoid turning an ankle on them as I walk through our fields. Stunningly beautiful.

    I have been looking outside for the past 50 minutes, and sure enough the moon popped up over the houses on the eastern horizon! it looked like a monster had eaten the top of the moon off!! :angry: Now the moon appears to be back to it's "normal" self...
