Timeline: Lunar eclipse over Cincinnati


Local weather conditions do not appear to be ideal to view Tuesday morning's lunar eclipse. Cloud cover will likely blot out the view of the moon.

However, if a gap in the cloud cover does appear, Tri-state residents can view an amazing phenomenon.


  • The moon will rise Monday evening around 8:00 p.m. It will be visible just south of due east. Immediately above the moon Mars will be visible.
  • At 12:53 a.m. Tuesday, the Penumbral Phase – or a slight dimming - begins. At this phase, the moon is just east of due south 40 degrees above the horizon. Mars will be in conjunction.
  • The partial eclipse begins at 1:58 a.m.
  • Totality Begins at 3:06 a.m. Totality is when the state of the eclipse is total.
  • Mid Totality is at 3:45 a.m.
  • At 4:24 a.m., totality ends
  • The partial eclipse ends at 5:33 a.m.
  • The Penumbral Phase ends at 6:37 a.m.

All Lunar eclipses occur during a full moon.
