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

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 Tórshavn, 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.
