Total Lunar eclipse, 15th June 2011


Live broadcast

On wednesday 15th June 2011 a total lunar eclipse will be partially visible from the whole Iberian Peninsula and both Balearic and Canary Islands. The Moon will rise completely eclipsed. We will be able to observe part of the totality phase (the more the further East) and the subsequent partiality phase, until the moon leaves the Earth's shadow. In the Balearic Islands and in some places Northeast of the Peninsula, the Moon will rise a few minutes before the start of the totality. The rise of the Moon will coincide with the sunset, so part of the totality will be observed on the twilight.

All phases of the eclipse will be visible from the Eastern half of Africa, parts of Asia and Western Pacific.

To enjoy a good observation we need a good visibility on the South-East horizon.
