Astrognome Scrapbook Lunar Eclipse 1204 AD

Lunar Eclipse 1204 AD

A total eclipse of the Moon occurred on 10th October, 1204 with maximum eclipse at 17:42 UT. A dramatic total eclipse lasting 1 hour and 41 minutes plunged the full Moon into deep darkness, as it passed right through the centre of the Earth's umbral shadow.

 While the visual effect of a total eclipse is variable, the Moon may have been stained a deep orange or red colour at maximum eclipse. This was a great spectacle for everyone who saw it.
