Animation: How the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Will Look

The maximum part of the eclipse occurs when the Moon is close under the horizon. The best time to view the eclipse in St. John's 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 endsJul 27 at 8:58 PM122°East-southeast2.2°

This eclipse is in progress during moonrise or moonset, so only parts of the eclipse are visible in St. John's.

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