Animation: How the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Looked

The total phase of this lunar eclipse was not visible in Dikson, but it could 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.

The maximum part of the eclipse occurs when the Moon is close under the horizon. The best time to view the eclipse in Dikson 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 endsApr 4 at 9:59 PM123°East-southeast2.7°
The Earth's penumbra ends.
Moon close to horizon, so make sure you have free sight to East-southeast.
Times are local for Dikson (KRAT – Krasnoyarsk Time).

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

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