Maximum in 21°46'59.9"N, 72°16'59.9"W This is the moment when the eclipse reaches its greatest magnitude while the entire Moon is above the horizon in 21°46'59.9"N, 72°16'59.9"W. The true maximum point of this eclipse cannot be seen in 21°46'59.9"N, 72°16'59.9"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-northeast for the best view of the eclipse.

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