Maximum in Diego Garcia This is the moment when the eclipse reaches its greatest magnitude while the entire Moon is above the horizon in Diego Garcia. The true maximum point of this eclipse cannot be seen in Diego Garcia because the Moon is below the horizon at that time.
Moon close to horizon, so make sure you have free sight to East-northeast.

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 Diego Garcia, but it can be observed there as a penumbral lunar eclipse. A penumbral lunar eclipse can be a bit hard to see as the shadowed part is only a little bit fainter than the rest of the Moon.
