5:11 am Sun, Oct 29
Maximum in 15°02'49.8"S, 167°05'07.1"E This is the moment when the eclipse reaches its greatest magnitude while the entire Moon is above the horizon in 15°02'49.8"S, 167°05'07.1"E. The true maximum point of this eclipse cannot be seen in 15°02'49.8"S, 167°05'07.1"E because the Moon is below the horizon at that 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 West-northwest for the best view of the eclipse.
