The maximum part of the eclipse occurs when the Moon is close under the horizon. The best time to view the eclipse in Kampala 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-northeast for the best view of the eclipse.
