Five Millennium Logo Five Millennium (-1999 to +3000) Canon of Lunar Eclipses Database

During the 5,000-year period from -1999 to +3000 (2000 BCE to 3000 CE), Earth will experience 12,064 lunar eclipses. The statistical distribution of eclipse types for this interval is as follows : 4,207 partial eclipses, 4,378 penumbral eclipses and 3,479 total eclipses. All the data accessed through this interface is provided by Fred Espenak (NASA Technical Publication). The data available is described in greater detail in the Key to Lunar Eclipse Catalogs. Years in this catalog are numbered astronomically and include the year 0. Historians should note there is a difference of one year between astronomical dates and BCE dates. Thus, the astronomical year 0 corresponds to 1 BCE, and astronomical year -1 corresponds to 2 BCE, etc.
Detailed information, Google Maps and Google Earth kmz files for each of the 12,064 lunar eclipses (total, partial or penumbral) can be generated on-the-fly from this Web page. Be aware that the uncertainty in Earth’s rotational period expressed in the parameter ΔT has an impact on the geographic visibility of eclipses in the past and future. Know more about ΔT retrodiction or 5MCLE’s ΔT model.
