Eclipse visible in Windhoek – August 7, 2017 — Partial Lunar Eclipse

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

During this partial lunar eclipse, the Earth's shadow covers only parts of the Moon, as seen from Windhoek. As the central part of the Earth's shadow (umbra) misses the Moon during a partial lunar eclipse, there are no other locations on Earth where the Moon appears completely covered during this event.
