It’s eclipse season again

This illustration shows times (EDT) for the various phases of the October 8 total lunar eclipse as the Moon glides through Earth’s shadow. Asterisks indicate times after the Moon has set in Montreal. North is up; because the eclipse takes place near the western horizon, the whole diagram has to be tilted about 45 degrees to the right to show the proper orientation in the sky, as seen in the right-hand panel.
