Maximum in Prince George This is the moment when the eclipse reaches its greatest magnitude while the entire Moon is above the horizon in Prince George. The true maximum point of this eclipse cannot be seen in Prince George 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 Southeast for the best view of the eclipse.

During this penumbral lunar eclipse, the Earth's main shadow does not cover the Moon. As the Earth's shadow (umbra) misses the Moon during a penumbral lunar eclipse, there are no other locations on Earth where the Moon appears partially or totally eclipsed during this event. 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.
