Maximum in Santorini This is the moment when the eclipse reaches its greatest magnitude while the entire Moon is above the horizon in Santorini. The true maximum point of this eclipse cannot be seen in Santorini because the Moon is below the horizon at that time.
Moon close to horizon, so make sure you have free sight to West-southwest.

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 partial lunar eclipse, the Earth's shadow covers only parts of the Moon, as seen from Santorini. There are no other locations on Earth where the Moon appears completely covered during this event.
