That's not an eclipse you're seeing, it's just the moon. X-Plane (like all other flight simulators, except maybe Orbiter) does not model eclipses.

Are you sure, it faded in and out a number of times.

Mmm... You should make a video or a series of screenshots to see what's going on. I tried in XP11 and the eclipse does not show.

It doesn't, in XP11.05.

Maybe Jude's remarks were regarding XP10

Tried at various locations, although one would perfectly suffice... at the USA along the full eclipse band, and also in Norway ( Bergen ).  Nothing even close - not even any hint of Moon, but then, it was supposed to be full, anyway...

Sometimes XP is in schedule with reality, but most of the time it isn't, both regarding Moon placement and phase, as well as daylight / twilight...

Uninstalling flightsims is a Temptation I can never resist...

I was using XP 11.02, I was getting twilight in and out a couple of times, where it would fade completely dark and back to daylight about 5 or 6 times, I was flying from ENGM to ENBR - luckily daylight arrived again just on approach :)
