Lunar eclipse guide 2018: When and where to see in the UK
How to see the lunar eclipse in the UK
27 July 2018
On 27 July 2018, Mars will be at opposition and a total lunar eclipse will be visible over most of Europe and Asia, Australia and South America.

Those in the UK will not be able to see the start of the lunar eclipse as the Moon will still be below the horizon at this time. However, the Moon will already be in the Earth’s umbra (the darkest part of the Earth’s shadow) and so will already start to look red. The table below shows the timings for the lunar eclipse as seen from London.

Most of these timings will apply for the rest of the UK but they might differ by a few minutes. However, moonrise times will vary depending on location. For example, the Moon will rise at 9:22pm in Edinburgh, 9:02pm in Cardiff and 9:27pm in Belfast. The Moon will also appear to be lower in the sky the further north you are.
