The maximum part of the eclipse occurs when the Moon is close under the horizon. The best time to view the eclipse in Baker Lake would be around this time.
Since the Moon is near the horizon at this time, we recommend going to a high point or finding an unobstructed area with free sight to North-northeast for the best view of the eclipse.
Penumbral Eclipse endsDec 31 at 3:28:14 PM39°Northeast3.6°
The Earth's penumbra ends.
Moon close to horizon, so make sure you have free sight to Northeast.
Times are local for Baker Lake (CST – Central Standard Time).

This eclipse is in progress during moonrise or moonset, so only parts of the eclipse are visible in Baker Lake.
