Maximum in 54°02'S, 37°21'W This is the moment when the eclipse reaches its greatest magnitude while the entire Moon is above the horizon in 54°02'S, 37°21'W. The true maximum point of this eclipse cannot be seen in 54°02'S, 37°21'W 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 East-southeast for the best view of the eclipse.
Map direction East-southeast 119°
5:31 pm Fri, May 5
Penumbral Eclipse ends The Earth's penumbra ends.
Moon close to horizon, so make sure you have free sight to East-southeast.
Map direction East-southeast 111°

The curvature of the shadow's path and the apparent rotation of the Moon's disk is due to the Earth's rotation.
