December 21, 2010 — Total Lunar Eclipse — Bangkok

Animation: How the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Looked

The total phase of this lunar eclipse was not visible in Bangkok, but it could 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 Bangkok 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 endsDec 21 at 6:04 PM66°East-northeast1.1°
The Earth's penumbra ends.
Moon close to horizon, recommend going to a high point.
Times are local for Bangkok (ICT – Indochina Time).

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

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