Maximum in Alsfeld This is the moment when the eclipse reaches its greatest magnitude while the entire Moon is above the horizon in Alsfeld. The true maximum point of this eclipse cannot be seen in Alsfeld 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.
Map direction Southeast 129°
10:55 pm Thu, Jul 6
Penumbral Eclipse ends The Earth's penumbra ends.
Moon close to horizon, so make sure you have free sight to Southeast.
Map direction Southeast 143°

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

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.
