The maximum part of the eclipse occurs when the Moon is close under the horizon. The best time to view the eclipse in Yakutsk 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 Southeast for the best view of the eclipse.
Penumbral Eclipse endsJun 4 at 11:18:16 PM151°South-southeast1.8°
The Earth's penumbra ends.
Moon close to horizon, so make sure you have free sight to South-southeast.
Times are local for Yakutsk (YAKT – Yakutsk Time).

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

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