Eclipse visible in Adak – Feb 20, 2008 Total Lunar Eclipse

The animation shows approximately what the eclipse looks like from the night side of earth.

This is an approximate representation. The eclipse and moon will look slightly different in real life.

The total phase of this lunar eclipse is not visible in Adak, 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.

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

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

Times are local for Adak (HAST - Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time).
