Eclipse visible in Kansas City – May 26, 2021 Partial 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.

During this partial lunar eclipse, the Earth's shadow covers only parts of the Moon, as seen from Kansas City. As the central part of the Earth's shadow (umbra) misses the Moon during a partial lunar eclipse, 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.
