Maximum in 42°10'46.0"N, 71°13'06.6"W This is the moment when the eclipse reaches its greatest magnitude while the entire Moon is above the horizon in 42°10'46.0"N, 71°13'06.6"W. The true maximum point of this eclipse cannot be seen in 42°10'46.0"N, 71°13'06.6"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 West-southwest for the best view of the eclipse.
