Eclipse visible in Abu Dhabi – Oct 28, 2004 Total Lunar Eclipse

The animation shows approximately what the eclipse looks like from the night side of earth.

This is an approximate representation. The eclipse and moon will look slightly different in real life.

The total phase of this lunar eclipse is not visible in Abu Dhabi, but it can be observed there as a partial lunar eclipse.

The Earth's shadow covers a large portion of the Moon, so this is still a nice sight.
