Information about the total lunar eclipse
on Monday, 28th September 2015
(in Europe, Africa and most of America fully visible)


Easily explained
During a lunar eclipse, the Moon moves through the shadow of the Earth. Which means, that the Earth is positioned quite exactly between the Sun and Moon and casts its shadow onto the Moon. This is only possible at full moon and if some other requirements are met. Depending on whether the Moon passes the partial or the core shadow of the Earth, we speak of a partial or total lunar eclipse.



The copper-colored Moon
When the Moon touches the core shadow of the Earth, the first parts of the moon surface begin to darken. If you would actually stand on the Moon, you would experience a total solar eclipse! As soon as the Moon immerses completely in the core shadow, the surface of the Moon begins to glow copper red. Towards the centre of the core shadow, the light fades and turns dark red to brownish grey.

About the visibility
This total lunar eclipse will only be visible in Europe, Africa and in most parts of America. In the Near and Middle East and parts of Asia, you can only see the beginning of the lunar eclipse, shortly before sunrise. In Australia and Hawaii, it will not be visible at all.

• Australia: not visible
