7:08 am Sun, Feb 21
Maximum in 40°05'26.8"N, 113°17'19.7"E This is the moment when the eclipse reaches its greatest magnitude while the entire Moon is above the horizon in 40°05'26.8"N, 113°17'19.7"E. The true maximum point of this eclipse cannot be seen in 40°05'26.8"N, 113°17'19.7"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.

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