Animation: How the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Will Look

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

This eclipse is in progress during moonrise or moonset, so only parts of the eclipse are visible in Lihue.
