    I suspect that I know the answer allreay. But. Will next weeks Total Lunar Eclipse, be visible from England?

    Paul,

    Unfortunately not. According to the Handbook, page 10, the penumbral phase starts at 04:53 just as the moon is setting so I suppose it is possible that observers with a very clear western horizon might see some effects but it will be a difficult observation. The next TLE is October 8th (Handbook page 12) and we don’t get to see any of that either!

    Nick.

    The next one visible from the UK seems to be 28th September next year.

    Presumably it will be cloudy that night.

    David.
