Lunar eclipse in the past

Earlier this morning a total lunar eclipse should have observed. Gosh, it was cloudy at my place.

According to the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, the moon would have started to wane at 3:22 am June 16th and total eclipse at 4:22 am.

Lunar eclipse can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned exactly with the Earth in the middle. Hence it can only occur the night of a full moon.

The next occasion when the lunar eclipse occurs in Japan is in the midnight of December 10th this year.
