The Moon leaves the Sun's edge.
Sun close to horizon, so make sure you have free sight to East-northeast.

This eclipse is in progress during sunrise or sunset, so the Sun is displayed only partly in some phases, according to its altitude below the horizon. The animation's bottom edge represents an ideal, flat horizon, which is at the same altitude as the observer.
