Animation: How the Partial Lunar Eclipse Will Look

During this partial lunar eclipse, the Earth's shadow covers only parts of the Moon, as seen from London. There are no other locations on Earth where the Moon appears completely covered during this event. The Earth's shadow covers a large portion of the Moon, so this is still a nice sight.
