Was this eclipse visible in Washington DC?

DEBUG:C:world_maps 2b DEBUG:C:world_maps 3

The animation shows where this penumbral lunar eclipse is visible during the night (dark “wave” slowly moving across the Earth's surface).

Shades of darkness

Night, moon high up in sky.

Moon between 12 and 18 degrees above horizon.

Moon between 6 and 12 degrees above horizon. Make sure you have free line of sight.

Moon between 0 and 6 degrees above horizon. May be hard to see due to brightness and line of sight.

Day, moon and eclipse both not visible.

Note: Twilight will affect the visibility of the eclipse, as well as weather.

DEBUG:C:world_maps 4

Note that since it is a penumbral eclipse, it can be hard to see, as the moon will only be a bit fainter.

100% visible (start to end).

More than 75% of the event was visible

Less than 75% of the event was visible

Less than 50% of the event was visible

Eclipse was not visible at all

Note: Percentage values (%) are of the overall eclipse event. Lighter shadings left (West) of center will experience the eclipse after moonrise/sunset. Shadings right (East) will experience until moonset/sunrise. Actual eclipse visibility depends on weather conditions and line of sight to the Moon.

When the eclipse happened worldwide
