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.

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

The total phase of this lunar eclipse is not visible in Phuntsholing, but it can be observed there as a partial lunar eclipse. The Earth's shadow covers a large portion of the Moon, so this is still a nice sight.
