Animation: How the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Will Look

The total phase of this lunar eclipse is not visible in Copenhagen, but it can be observed there as a penumbral lunar eclipse. A penumbral lunar eclipse can be a bit hard to see, as the shadowed part is only a little bit fainter than the rest of the Moon.

The maximum part of the eclipse occurs when the Moon is close under the horizon. The best time to view the eclipse in Copenhagen would be around this time.
Since the Moon is near the horizon at this time, we recommend going to a high point or finding an unobstructed area with free sight to East-northeast for the best view of the eclipse.
Penumbral Eclipse endsJan 31 at 5:08 PM64°East-northeast2.3°
The Earth's penumbra ends.
Moon close to horizon, so make sure you have free sight to East-northeast.
Times are local for Copenhagen (CET – Central European Time).

This eclipse is in progress during moonrise or moonset, so only parts of the eclipse are visible in Copenhagen.

The animation's bottom edge represents an ideal, flat horizon, which is at the same altitude as the observer.
