Total Lunar Eclipse on November 8th

#1

Post by OzEclipse »


Total Lunar Eclipse
A total lunar eclipse will occur at next full moon in two weeks on Tuesday 8th November.
LE2022-11-08T copy.JPG
North America, South America, Australia, and Asia see all or some of the event. Africa and Europe miss out. Eastern Australia will experience an evening eclipse with partial phase shadow ingress during twilight. Totality begins at around the time of astronomical twilight. Central USA and Canada experiences totality ending at morning astronomical twilight and partial phase shadow egress during morning twilight. Western Australia and Eastern USA and Canada experience partial eclipse ingress and egress during evening and morning twilights respectively.

The following comments relate to the eclipse as will be observed from eastern Australia. All times are expressed in EDT [UT+11hrs]. TSS members living north of the border in Queensland please subtract 1 hr and 50 years to convert to your local time zone. :lol: :lol:

The penumbral eclipse begins a short time before moonrise. Penumbral eclipses are barely visible to the naked eye so you won't miss much.
Moonrise and sunset are at around 19:30 in SE NSW and +/- 15 minutes in other parts of the east.
The partial eclipse begins 40 minutes later at 20:09 with the Moon 6 deg above the horizon and 20 deg north of east. At this stage, twilight is transitioning from Civil twilight (light blue) to Nautical twilight (dark blue). The partial phases will be seen to progress throughout the deep blue of nautical twilight. This display is a particularly beautiful colour combination and my favourite type of eclipse.

.
Totality begins at 21:17, one minute after Astronomical twilight with the Moon in the northeast and 18 deg up in the sky. Totality lasts 1hr 25m ending at 22:42. This is a relatively deep totality, but nowhere near a record. The total eclipse of July 16, 2000 was distinguished by the fact that it was the longest eclipse of the 20th century. The geometry was almost perfect. The Moon was very close to perigee. The centre of the Moon traversed almost through the axis of the Earth's shadow cone. It all added up to making this a very long deep eclipse with about 1hr 50m of totality. After totality, the partial eclipse lasts from 22:42 to 23:49 followed by a final penumbral phase from 23:49 to 01:00.

You will have all noticed the amazing sunsets we have experienced over the past 9 months. This is due to volcanic dust and aerosols, suspended high in the atmosphere, courtesy of the Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha'apai volcano eruption in Tonga last January. This dust will have spread right around the Earth and could potentially make this a very interesting, and very very dark, lunar eclipse.

After the cataclysmic Mt Pinatubo eruption in June 1991, I observed a lunar eclipse in June 1993. The dust and volcanic aerosols, which had by then spread all around the Earth, absorbed light and led to an extremely dark eclipse. It was so dark that at the time, we could barely see the eclipsed Moon at totality. Using film and the rudimentary equipment I had at the time, I couldn't record it properly and the Moon was only barely visible in the sky. Neighbours came over during totality and I had to really carefully point out where the Moon was before they could make it out. Years later, I made an illustration of my impression of how it appeared visually against the sky. It's hard to see in the photo as was the original event.

Current long range forecasts for that night in Eastern Australia are for wide spread cloud - naturally!

JayTee,

The first post in this forum is last July. Best kept secret on TSS. I hadn't noticed it until I saw Alan's annular eclipse post.

I have been pretty busy the past few months and with no clear nights since August, haven't been spending much time on TSS.

It hasn't but you my friend have a thread in it (Aug 26th), so you must've known about it! :lol:

viewtopic.php?t=26617


Anyway, I think it is one of those forums that is off on a side street (so to speak), and unless you really scour the whole site, you might not even notice it. I think that is part of why the readership for the threads here are lower. I do not visit all forums myself, so I am certain most others do not as well.

By the time the Moon gets to totality here it will have dropped behind the trees that plague my western view. I'll be up at 6 to vote, so will peek through the trees to see what there is to see.

It was fricking 19°F (-7C) this morning! My body just said NO. So I watched it using my Mark I eyeball inside my warm home.

I will say, it was a particularly nice lunar eclipse. Sorry I couldn't image it!
