Maximum Eclipse Moon is closest to the center of the shadow.
Moon close to horizon, so make sure you have free sight to East.

Penumbral Eclipse ends The Earth's penumbra ends.Map direction East-northeast 76°

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

During this penumbral lunar eclipse, the Earth's main shadow did not cover the Moon. As the Earth's shadow (umbra) misses the Moon during a penumbral lunar eclipse, there were no other locations on Earth where the Moon appeared 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.
