Animation: How the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Will Look

The total phase of this lunar eclipse is not visible in Ittoqqortoormiit, but it can be observed there as a penumbral lunar eclipse. A penumbral lunar eclipse can be a bit hard to see, as the shadowed part is only a little bit fainter than the rest of the Moon.
