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 Xianyang, 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.
