Next eclipse visible in Xiamen – April 4, 2015 — Partial Lunar Eclipse

The animation shows approximately what the eclipse looks like from the night side of earth.

During this partial lunar eclipse, the Moon covers only parts of the Sun, as seen from Xiamen. There are no other locations on Earth where the Sun appears completely covered during this event.

The Earth's shadow covers a large portion of the Moon, so this is still a nice sight.
