Maximum in 47°34'00"N, 7°35'59"E This is the moment when the eclipse reaches its greatest magnitude while the entire Moon is above the horizon in 47°34'00"N, 7°35'59"E. The true maximum point of this eclipse cannot be seen in 47°34'00"N, 7°35'59"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 East-southeast for the best view of the eclipse.
