Maximum in Inuit Qeqertaat This is the moment when the eclipse reaches its greatest magnitude while the entire Moon is above the horizon in Inuit Qeqertaat. The true maximum point of this eclipse cannot be seen in Inuit Qeqertaat 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-southwest for the best view of the eclipse.

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-southwest 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.
