A total lunar eclipse will take place on July 7, 2047. It will last 1 hour and 41 minutes will plunge the full Moon into deep darkness, as it passes right through the centre of the Earth's umbral shadow. While the visual effect of a total eclipse is variable, the Moon may be stained a deep orange or red colour at maximum eclipse. This will be a great spectacle for everyone who sees it. The partial eclipse will last for 3 hours and 39 minutes in total.

The moon will pass through the center of the Earth's shadow. Totality will last 102 minutes, the maximum for this Saros series.


It will be completely visible over most of the Pacific Ocean, seen rising over Australia and Eastern Asia, and setting over North and South America.

Saros series[edit]

Lunar saros series 130, repeating every 18 years and 11 days, has a total of 71 lunar eclipse events including 56 umbral lunar eclipses (42 partial lunar eclipses and 14 total lunar eclipses). Solar Saros 137 interleaves with this lunar saros with an event occurring every 9 years 5 days alternating between each saros series.

A lunar eclipse will be preceded and followed by solar eclipses by 9 years and 5.5 days (a half saros).[3] This lunar eclipse is related to two annular solar eclipses of Solar Saros 137.
