Timeline: Lunar eclipse over Cincinnati

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - 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.
