The maximum part of the eclipse occurs when the Moon is close under the horizon. The best time to view the eclipse in Blanc-Sablon 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 East-southeast for the best view of the eclipse.
Penumbral Eclipse endsAug 16 at 7:55:22 PM121°East-southeast6.9°
The Earth's penumbra ends.
Moon close to horizon, so make sure you have free sight to East-southeast.
Times are local for Blanc-Sablon (AST – Atlantic Standard Time).

This eclipse is in progress during moonrise or moonset, so only parts of the eclipse are visible in Blanc-Sablon.

The animation's bottom edge represents an ideal, flat horizon, which is at the same altitude as the observer.
