5:29 pm Tue, Mar 3RisingMoonrise Rising, but the combination of a very low moon and the total eclipse phase will make the moon so dim that it will be extremely difficult to view until moon gets higher in the sky or the total phase ends.Map direction East 83°
5:32 pm Tue, Mar 3
Total Eclipse ends Total moon eclipse ends.
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 for the best view of the eclipse.
Additionally, the eclipsed moon combined with dimming near horizon might make the Moon very hard or impossible to see.

Maximum in 25°35'21.0"N, 90°10'56.1"E This is the moment when the eclipse reaches its greatest magnitude while the entire Moon is above the horizon in 25°35'21.0"N, 90°10'56.1"E. The true maximum point of this eclipse cannot be seen in 25°35'21.0"N, 90°10'56.1"E because the Moon is below the horizon at that time.
Moon close to horizon, so make sure you have free sight to East.
