    Default Lunar Eclipse- 17 October 2005



    For those who don't understand:

    Eclipse first contact at 5.51pm
    Max eclipse is at 8.03pm
    Eclipse ends 10.15pm



    "2005 Oct 17: Partial Lunar Eclipse

    The last event of the year is a rather shallow partial eclipse of the Moon. The penumbral phase begins at 09:51 UT, but most observers will not be able to visually detect the shadow until about 10:30 UT A timetable for the major phases of the eclipse is as follows:

    Penumbral Eclipse Begins: 09:51:25 UT
    Partial Eclipse Begins: 11:33:59 UT
    Greatest Eclipse: 12:03:18 UT
    Partial Eclipse Ends: 12:32:26 UT
    Penumbral Eclipse Ends: 14:15:08 UT

    In spite of the fact that the eclipse is so shallow (the Moon's southern limb dips just 2.2 arc-minutes into Earth's dark umbral shadow), the partial phase last nearly one hour. This is due to the grazing geometry of the Moon and umbra

    At the instant of greatest eclipse (12:03 UT), the Moon will stand near the zenith for observers in the central Pacific. At that time, the umbral eclipse magnitude will be only 0.068. North Americans will all see the start of the event, but the Moon sets by mid-eclipse for observers east of the Mississippi River and Great Lakes. Further west, the entire event is visible from the Pacific coast provinces and states as well as eastern Asia and Australia. The Moon's path through Earth's shadows as well as a map illustrating worldwide visibility of the event is shown in (Figure 6)"

    Think this is when you view the eclipse when the moon is over the sun, that
    binoculars are not the right tool to view the phenomenon.

    This in a LUNAR eclipse, not a solar eclipse!

    Lunar eclipse is when Earth's shadow falls on the moon.

    Anywhere in the half of the world where the eclipse is visible and has a view of the sky.

    I tried on a 400mm (using film), it's small! I'd think at least a 600mm is needed to see the details.

    A solar eclipse is in store for Singapore in 2009.

    Meanwhile, enjoy and shoot this lunar eclipse!
