Animation: How the Partial Lunar Eclipse Will Look

The total phase of this lunar eclipse is not visible in Hanoi, 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.

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