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