When it all happens for Perth viewers? The July 28 2018 Lunar Eclipse

This eclipse will begin with the penumbral phase starting at 1:14 am (AWST) where the Moon starts to enter the outer edge of the Earth’s shadow (The Penumbra) and the Moon starts to dim.

At 2:24 am (AWST) the partial phase begins where the Moon starts to enter the centre portion of the Earth’s shadow (The Umbra) and we’ll start to see a visible dark area grow across the Moon until at 3:30 am (AWST) when the Moon completely enters the Umbra which begins the total phase of the eclipse (Totality) and the Moon turns completely copper.

The total phase will be at its max at 4:21 am (AWST) and will finish as the Moon starts to exit the Umbra at 5:13 am (AWST). This will again start the partial phase and we will see the dark area slowly recede from the face of the Moon with it completely gone by 6:19 am (AWST).

The Moon sets here in Perth at 7:17 am (AWST) so we’ll miss the last 11 minutes of the penumbral phase as the Moon completely leaves the Penumbra at 7:28 pm (AWST).
