2019’s last lunar eclipse will be visible in only Trøndelag and some other southern provinces in Norway.
The Last Lunar Eclipse of 2019 occurs today. It will be the moon’s turn to undergo an eclipse of its own. The full moon, in Sagittarius, will pass partway through the southern part of the Earth’s shadow resulting in a partial lunar eclipse.
This event will be seen in the Eastern Hemisphere, known colloquially as the “Old World”: Africa, Europe and western Asia. Some parts of Norway will see the moon rise already within the Earth’s shadow.
The eclipse will start around 20.42 (Norwegian time), but will not be visible until the moon rises where you live. On Tuesday evening, July 16, the moon will rise at 22.18 in Oslo, 22.15 in Kristiansand, 22.45 in Bergen, 22.59 in Trondheim and 23.38 in Mo i Rana.
The lunar eclipse will be best seen at around 11.31 pm, and there are three areas that are expected to be the best for observing the eclipse:
Trøndelag, south of eastern Norway and north of Hordaland.
